RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) - As the new year approaches, so does the deadline for Nevadans who have signed up for health insurance through the Nevada Silver State Exchange.

December 23 was the deadline for Nevadans to sign up for health insurance and have guaranteed coverage as of January 1, but there is still one more step that many people need to complete before the transaction is final.

The first payment must be made on your plan by 6 p.m. on Monday. The original deadline was going to be Friday, but now you have a few extra days. You can make your payment three different ways: online, by phone or by mail.

Jon Hager, the Executive Director for Nevada Health Link, says if you have registered within the last couple of weeks, you will not see your insurance cards by January 1. "If you pay on December 30, it still takes us time to get that enrollment information to the carriers, the carriers to get that information into the system, and mail out the cards. ... That's really important to understand."

If you have yet to sign up for health insurance, it is not too late. The final deadline before being subjected to a tax penalty in March 31.

I love the fact that the Feds have had over 3 years to get this ready,and to figure out how to make this work,now they have to keep putting segments of it off because it isn't working. This form of healthcare has never been self-sustaining-it CAN'T work. I don't know ANYONE who is okay with the Government giving THEIR hard-earned income to people who can't or WON'T work,whether they like it or not. How can they keep promising better,more affordable health care while people in the medical profession are quitting,taking early retirement and changing professions because the Government's new laws over-regulating them has made it impossible for them to stay? I'm seeing many students who WERE planning on health care as their profession changing to other kinds of livelihood that have less crushing Government over-managing. Simple supply and demand tells us that with fewer Doctors,either the cost and wait-time goes up or the quality goes down. So-where's the "better care" going to COME from?? There's NO way to make this work. It's high time for Obama to cut our losses and let the Free Enterprise System,warts and all,do its job.
