The Nevada Comprehensive Care Waiver (NCCW), known as the Health Care Guidance Program (HCGP), expired on June 30, 2018. The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) phased-out the HCGP in accordance with the Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

    • Managed Care Organization
    • Previous Targeted Case Management (TCM) providers
    • Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs)
    • Tribal Health Centers
    • Medicaid District Offices
