While there is not a date for the declaration of the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, many Nevadans may be at risk of losing their health insurance. To ensure access to health care during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) suspended member eligibility redeterminations. DWSS is now preparing for eligibility reviews to resume. DWSS, Nevada Medicaid, and our partners want to ensure we can continue to reach members.
Nevada Medicaid is asking providers, partners, MCOs, and others to encourage Medicaid members to update their contact information now, get ready to renew their coverage, or be prepared to transition to other health insurance.
Direct members who need to transition to other insurance to Nevada Health Link: https://www.nevadahealthlink.com/
Encourage members to download the NV Medicaid App to receive messages.
Ask members to sign up for Medicaid Member News direct from Nevada Medicaid here.
Providers can find information on Nevada Medicaid’s COVID-19 page and, in addition to regularly checking for Web Announcements at Medicaid.NV.GOV, providers can sign up for email notifications from Nevada Medicaid here.
Keep in mind that a larger number of the Nevada population is expected to lose insurance with the end of Public Health Emergency.
