“We are thrilled to offer NDOI Connect free of charge,” said Commissioner Scott J. Kipper. “This consumer oriented smartphone app will allow Nevadans to connect with the Division of Insurance in ways that have never been available before.”
NDOI Connect is available for free on both the Apple App store and the Google Play store. The app provides online services the Division offers, including:
- The ability to file a complaint through the app.
- The ability to compare custom health insurance rates and plan information for 2015.
- The ability to compare custom title insurance rates and escrow fees based off the cost of your home and county of residence.
- The ability to search for and verify the license of an agent, agency, carrier or exchange enrollment facilitator.
- The ability to view Division bulletins.
- The ability to view upcoming Division public meetings and hearings.
- The ability to contact the Division through the app.
NVInsurance101.com is an educational website created to help Nevadans understand the basics of health insurance.
The Division said the site can help save money and avoid unexpected charges by learning when and where to purchase insurance. Also included is information on the understanding the difference between health plans, such as PPOs and HMOs, as well as how to use insurance, how deductibles, copays and co-insurance work and how they affect the cost of care.
