They've had a virtual monopoly on this Valley since I was in my twenties. That was long before UHC bought them. And then was allowed to buy their only competition, Pacificare. If you stick with the PPO plans, you'll be fine.

BTW, Southwest Medical Centers Urgent Cares are actually pretty damned good. Especially the one on Rancho.

Thanks but am too young for medicare. Unfortunately.

LEGIT options are very little for those not medicare age. Either the crap offered on the exchange, all my doctor say they won't take or Sierra PPO at various levels.

Goin with Sierra Gold, its only about $140.00 higher than the Blues program I had. But not nearly as good.

I'm in the same boat. Where did you get Sierra Gold?

From healthcare.gov I only see 2 providers available for me: HPN or Ambetter From SilverSummit Healthplan.

Both are HMO, no PPO at all.

Went to ehealthinsurance and they have 0 plan for 89148. Same thing with Anthem direct.

Try going down to Sierra, if that's what you want. They have agents there. The business office is located on Tenaya, adjacent to Mtn. View hospital. Forget about Anthem. Anthem pulled out of the exchange due to uncertainty in politics, and only offer government ( Medicare & Medicaid ) plans, plus employer group plans.

I also can't find where to buy Sierra plans.

I keep searching the web and only am able to buy either HPN or Ambetter.

Does anyone know if Sierra cheapest qualified plan is better than HPN?

What a horrible system in Nevada for self-employed.

I just went ahead and purchased MySHL Solutions EPO Bronze for 2018.

I'm sure it is total crap, but I'm hoping to not need to go to any doctor in 2018, so chose the cheapest option that was available. About $550 for family of two.

How, or who would I contact to gain assistance in finding which plan is right for me?
I used the link listed earlier in this thread, seems quite helpful.
I am a mid 20's aged male, single.

Does anyone know any trustworthy agents that could assist in making the right choice? Don't want to find someone just eager to make a sale.
