Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP)

The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) works in partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to assist in providing quality medical care for eligible individuals and families with low incomes and limited resources. The medical programs are known as Medicaid and Nevada Check Up.


Provides health care coverage for many people including low income families with children whose family income is at or below 133% percent of poverty, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients, certain Medicare beneficiaries, and recipients of adoption assistance, foster care and some children aging out of foster care. The DHCFP also operates five Home or Community-Based Services waivers offered to certain persons throughout the state. The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) determines eligibility for the Medicaid program. Information regarding eligibility is available on line at or by calling toll free at 1-800-992-0900.

Nevada Check Up

Provides health care benefits to uninsured children from low-income families who are not eligible for Medicaid but whose family income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Information regarding the Nevada Check Up program is available at or by calling toll free at 1-877-543-7669.

Services for both Medicaid and Nevada Check Up are provided through a combination of traditional fee-for-service provider networks and managed care.
