Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)


NEVADA MEDICAID RESPONSE

 

You can be confident that the Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and working closely with local, state and federal government agencies and business health care partners to ensure the health and safety of the Nevadans we serve.

DHCFP has created this webpage to answer frequently asked questions, and better share information and resources as it pertains to the current status of COVID-19 and its impact on Nevada Medicaid recipients and providers.  Updated information will be posted as more details come available.

Some of the activities DHCFP currently is pursuing:

  • Policy review: DHCFP is reviewing policy to identify whether changes are needed to State Plan Amendments (SPAs), waivers, state policy manuals, or managed care contracts to maximize additional flexibility to address COVID-19.
  • IT and Systems changes: DHCFP is making systems changes and implementing rates to ensure timely reimbursement for HCPCS and ICD-10 codes associated with COVID-19 testing.

The most important thing we can all do right now is to follow sensible advice about infection control (see Prevention Tips link on right).   Following these guidelines will help Nevada flatten the pandemic’s curve, and protect the most vulnerable among us.
