Nevada residents seeking affordable, high-quality, income-appropriate health insurance are invited to attend the Northern Nevada open enrollment health fair hosted by Nevada Health Link. The event launches the open enrollment period which runs through Jan. 31, 2016.

In addition, attendees will have immediate access to information about federal tax credits and subsidies to help cover insurance costs, important dates and deadlines and how and where they can enroll, including the opportunity to schedule in-person appointments with licensed brokers nearest to them if they choose not to enroll that day.

Food trucks and various other food vendors will be selling small bites and beverages, and various health service providers will offer free screenings, including blood pressure checks, flu shots and more.
