Does Nomad Health cover any part of my premium?

How much does Nomad Health insurance cost per month?

We encourage you to browse our options and choose the plan that is best for you.

Our insurance kicks in on day one of your assignment and ends on the final day of your contract. Upon the end of your contract, you will be provided with information to enroll in continued coverage through COBRA.
When can I enroll in Nomad Health insurance?
You have until you begin your assignment to enroll in our insurance. Outside of that, a life event or open enrollment periods will also make you eligible.
What is COBRA?
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) allows employees to continue to receive benefits under their employer's group health plans after losing coverage due to termination. Should you elect coverage, your new effective date will be the day following the date your coverage was terminated. Employees pay their entire premium, plus an administrative fee.
How does insurance work if I take time off between assignments?
If you end an assignment and have a new assignment through Nomad in the next 14 days, you will not experience any interruptions to your insurance. If you extend your current assignment, your coverage will continue for your extension. For further time off between assignments, your coverage can be continued via COBRA and information will be sent to you upon completion of your assignment.
What if I already have health insurance?
Our insurance is a benefit that is there if you need it.
What happens if my assignment ends early?
In the event that this happens, your insurance terminates upon the date that your assignment ends, but you are given the option to continue coverage through COBRA.
