crown her tree and take it back. do you have your holiday shopping done? there are only a couple of days left. thank you for joining us today. i'm dao vu. hopefully you'll get that shopping in and stop procrastinating. today we have a lot on tap, including last minute ideas in case you have been procrastinating. first, get your child ready for child. open enrollment is underway for the nevada prepaid tuition program. you could even win a year of free tuition. here to show us how you can get signed up, nevada's state treasurer, dan schwartz. good morning. great to see you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> can you tell us about this program?
9:01 am
i can't think of a better gift than a prepaid or college savings program. the prepaid, they're both very similar in that they enable parents, nevada parents to save for their children's education and take any increase in value out tax free. the college savings program, which is the one that actually prepaid is offering a free year of tuition, enables you to save. we have five different programs. you invest, you can invest as little as $15 and the earlier you start, in other words, if your baby has just been born, it would be a fabulous christmas gift to start a college savings program. and hopefully by the time your son or daughter is ready to go to college, you've built a nice nest egg for them. >> the nevada prepaid tuition basically allows you to pay for tomorrow's tuition at today's prices because it always goes
9:02 am
if you look at the statistics, gas and eggs and butter and milk have gone up certainly. the highest percentage increase over the last ten years has been in college tuition. something like 1300%. >> wow. >> and what the pretrade tuition plan does is you buy it today, you invest and there is different ways to invest. you can buy it lump sum or do it over five years. i think now ten years. when your son or daughter gets ready to go to college, they are guaranteed a free ride at least as far as tuition, at one of the universities. >> are you finding a lot of grandparents are gifting their grandkids this? >> i would hope they are. when you look at a fire truck or a nintendo or whatever they're buying today, to me, the best thing you can do for your -- the best thing you can do is encourage them to crack the books. but beyond that, you've got to save. and not only does it pay the
9:03 am
is a big problem now with college debt, with debt that a lot of the students have gotten, this will not object crate that, but cut it down to a manageable size. >> how long have you been trying to raise awareness about this program? >> we had a great fall promotion which was the sage, the magic desert tortoise. for those of you lucky enough to see him, we're going to get him next time we're on the show here. but we started in september. we hit every nook and cranny. there he is there. >> so cute. >> and we're trying to encourage the kids to tell their parents this is really, really important. >> and what is the cost to open a college savings account? >> there is two types of accounts. one is the college savings. the 529. the other is prepaid tuition. prepaid tuition is if you're feeling wealthy and you've got
9:04 am
pocket, it's about 22 or 23,000. if you want to do five years, it's probably four or 500 a month. college savings you can open for as little as $15. we also have what's known as college kick start. this is the program where the state of nevada puts $50 in every kindergartener's account in the hopes that this will encourage them to save. we're going to have some changes. the treasurer's office is going to make this -- we're going to put some real incentive into this program so that kids will not just get $50, but they will get more if they put on a college savings program after it. so we want nevadans to go to college. if you don't go to college, go to junior college of the if you don't go to junior college, you should think seriously to get a certificate. if you ignore education, you are locking in a place at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder for the rest of your life and that's
9:05 am
>> and it will be hard to move up. >> it's very hard. >> talk about the open enrollment date. >> the open enrollment for prepaid tuition is i believe march. then the college savings starts again in early next year. so we have this contest for prepaid that if you open up a prepaid savings account, you get a year's free tuition. you got to win. >> enroll and then you can win. >> you're eligible. >> so you do that automatically. you will enroll somebody once you set it up, make a payment into it, you're good? >> absolutely. absolutely. yeah. we've got your name. we know where to find you and it happens. there is someone in the north and someone in the south who will get a year's free tuition as a result. >> fantastic. let's talk about where it can be used, this money. >> yeah. very good question. both of them are designed to be
9:06 am
but they can be used anywhere in the country. for example, if your son or daughter wants to go to harvard, we will pay the equivalent of what we would have paid had they gone to unr or unlv. it's national -- you can also take the money out. if for some reason your son or daughter doesn't want to go to college, for prepaid you just get the principle back. it's an important difference. for college saving, you get all of the money that you've earned by saving and investing. the prepaid really is like an insurance policy. so there is a bit of that built into the program. so as i say, they're not -- you don't lose it. you put the money in. it's a great savings program. and you can even move them to a relative, your brother or his brother or i think up to their first cousin. >> we have ten seconds left. you wanted to talk about the esa program. >> yes.
9:07 am
adopt the education savings account rules and regulations. this is a big moment. the legislature passed a bill over the weekend effectively sanctifying -- giving credit to our exceptions for their kindergarteners. so we encourage you to come down at 10:00 o'clock and watch us get the rules going and off to the legislative commission. >> fantastic. thank you so much. >> thank you. now through january 31, if you open a prepaid tuition plan, you are automatically entered to win a year's worth of university tuition valued at more than $6,000. to learn more about the open enrollment that runs through march 31, check out the web site on your screen or call the number listed. still to come on the blend, where you can go to find out what makes our valley great.

9:36 am
development coming on here regarding the availability of now clinic. >> sure. in the past month or so, there has been state regulation changes allowing medicaid patients now the same access to telemedicine that our spacious had for the last two years. medicaid can access telemedicine we had a quarter million new patients to the state. a lot of times we had no access to primary care providers or medical care. now they have either access to simple conditions. >> very nice. when it comes to registering, downloading the app, do you see just any doctor that's available at the time or is there a specific doctor? can you see your own doctor if they're working? >> our telemed is limited to care needs. things that require urgent attention. so we have a panel provider that you can access with a click of your smart phone.
