Students applying for Nevada or Utah state Medicaid should know that it can take approximately 1-3 months for a decision to be made regarding eligibility (if you are starting an initial application). That said, any student interested in this option should plan accordingly, as your adjudication will need to be completed by the student insurance waiver deadline you have been given, so any out-standing adjudication from Medicaid after that date will not be approved for the student health insurance waiver. If no insurance is in place by that date, you will be auto-enrolled in the student health insurance plan, and you will be responsible for the annual premium (this cost will be reflected on your student statement).


The HealthCare.gov marketplace now offers a one-stop shop for Americans in need of purchasing health insurance to meet the federal mandate that every person either purchase insurance coverage,  qualify due to employment (either being the insured or being a spouse/dependent of the insured), or be exempt.
