Nevada's state-based public exchange will give consumers more time to sign up for individual health coverage.

Members of the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange Board, the body that governs the Nevada Health Link exchange, voted Thursday to add a 60-day special enrollment period. 

Federal and state officials who set up the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act public exchange system added the open enrollment calendar rules to try to keep consumers from waiting until they get sick to buy individual QHP coverage.

The open enrollment system started Oct. 1 and is set to end March 31.
