Important Changes Coming to Nevada Medicaid
For the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, members may be removed from Medicaid because the Continuous Coverage Condition ends March 31, 2023. Eligibility reviews will start April 1, 2023 and continue for 14 months. To ensure you and your family stay insured if you still qualify, update your address to ensure you receive important notices in the mail and respond to any requests for information. Here is a flyer you can post at work and share with friends to help them update their address in English and Spanish.
Check your mail
The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services may mail you a letter about your Medicaid or CHIP coverage. This letter will also let you know if you need to complete a renewal form to see if you still qualify for Medicaid or CHIP. If you get a renewal form, fill it out and return it to your state right away. This may help you avoid a gap in your coverage. You can also sign up for paperless notifications through AccessNevada.dwss.nv.gov. A PIN is required.
How to use AccessNevada
Once you have created an account at AccessNevada.dwss.nv.gov, it is the quickest way to go paperless and update your address. Video tutorial are available here.
Print and post flyers
Many employers rely on Medicaid to maintain a healthy workforce. Consider printing and providing the flyers below to your employer to consider posting in lunch rooms so that employees can update their address easily and stay in touch.

Apply for Medicaid
Families whose income is at or below 133% of the Federal Poverty Level, have Supplemental Social Security Income (SSI) or certain Medicare beneficiaries in the household, or have children in foster care or receiving adoption assistance, may qualify for Medicaid. Families with uninsured children who are not eligible for Medicaid but whose family income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level may qualify for Nevada Check up.
An eligibility pre-screening test is available through Nevada Health Link's 2015 Enrollment Process and families may also have their complete eligibility determined by applying for benefits online or in person at a Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) office. The DWSS website provides office locations under "Contact Us" and the online benefits application under "Access Nevada".
