CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The insurance plan has been selected and paid for, but officials with Nevada’s online marketplace say it may take a while for the newly insured to receive enrollment cards in the mail.

Nevadans who selected a plan by Monday’s deadline and pay for it by 6 p.m. Friday will have coverage Jan. 1.

Once payment is made, the information will be electronically transmitted to the carrier chosen by the consumer. Officials say it could take a week for the carrier to receive the information and enter it into its system.

Consumers should call their carriers on or after Jan. 1 to verify coverage.

If they want to schedule an appointment with a doctor, the carrier will provide a pending insurance number to give to the health care provider indicating eligibility.
