Medicaid & Nevada Check Up (CHIP) State Plans


 The Medicaid and CHIP state plans are agreements between Nevada and the federal government describing how we administer these programs. It gives an assurance that Nevada will abide by federal rules and may claim federal matching funds for program activities. The state plan sets out groups of individuals to be covered, services to be provided, methodologies for providers to be reimbursed and the administrative activities that are under way in the state.
When Nevada is planning to make a change to program policies or operational approach, we send state plan amendments (SPAs) to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and approval. We also submit SPAs to request permissible program changes, make corrections, or update the Medicaid or CHIP state plan with new information.

For a history of SPAs, see the Medicaid.gov website.
