The collective partnership of Marketing for Change, a research and creative agency anchored in behavioral science, The Abbi Agency, and Ericka Aviles Consulting has been selected by the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange to help eligible Nevadans enroll in qualified health and dental plans through the state exchange. The total contract is valued at $3.2 million and runs for four years, with the option for two one-year extensions.
“Based on our years of work with the federal Health Insurance Marketplace, and with state exchanges in Florida, Minnesota, and Texas, we have a keen understanding of how and when people think about purchasing health insurance and outreach strategies that reach the right audience,” said Peter Mitchell, a principal at Marketing for Change, which is located in Alexandria, VA, and Orlando, FL. “We’re excited to build upon this expertise to help make it fun, easy, and popular for Nevadans to enroll in a plan that works for them.”
Silver State Health Insurance Exchange facilitates the sale of qualified health and dental plans and connects Nevadans who are not insured by their employer, Medicaid, or Medicare to health insurance options. Through Nevada Health Link, individuals can find quality and affordable health insurance plans with tax credits or subsidies that are based on their income.
“Across the nation, health exchanges offer affordable health coverage for those individuals and families who maybe never had coverage previously. Locally, Nevada residents and small businesses have an opportunity to shop and compare qualified health and dental plans as well as determine eligibility for and receive subsidies on healthcare premiums,” said Janel Davis, Communications Officer at the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. “As we go full steam ahead to grow the impact of Nevada Health Link, having the unique powerhouse of three expert agencies working collaboratively, each dedicated to ensuring individuals have access to quality and affordable health coverage, is a great privilege.”
“We highly resonate with the Exchange’s commitment to offering affordable health insurance to all Nevadans who need it, and we are therefore thrilled to have the opportunity to spread awareness for this vital state organization and its initiatives,” said Abbi Whitaker, President and Founder of The Abbi Agency. “It is so rewarding to know that we will be putting our years of health and Nevada community expertise towards a great cause – expanding healthcare access for many residents across the Silver State.”
