C.A.R.E. is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to educating Nevadans about the Affordable Care Act's life-saving consumer and patient protections that are already benefitting millions of Americans.
C.A.R.E.'s mission as a Navigator & enrollment facilitator is to be an "all inclusive" access point for Nevada consumers, regardless of their income, their eligibility for public programs, or subsidized or non-subsidized health coverage.
Our duties include: public education activities related to Nevada's Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, networking with community organizations to provide information related to health issues and the NevadaHealthLink to their members, distributing information on NevadaHealthLink enrollment, facilitating enrollment via NevadaHealthLink, referring people with questions, complaints or grievances to appropriate governmental agencies, assisting Nevada's Health Insurance Exchange in educating and enrolling Nevada's uninsured population to reduce the number of uninsured in our communities.
At C.A.R.E., our strongest asset is our expertise and cultural competency in assisting communities of color and vulnerable populations, such as low-income families, seniors, individuals who are not functionally literate or have low-English literacy, families of individuals with special health care needs, individuals with physical or mental disabilities, and individuals with substance-abuse issues, with the goal of enrolling the members of these populations into Nevada's Exchange.
