You may need to shop for other insurance options, including a qualified health plan through Nevada Health Link. 

Nearly 900,000 Nevadans are currently insured by Nevada State Medicaid and hundreds of thousands are at risk of losing their coverage during the redetermination process that will begin when the federal Public Health Emergency (COVID-19 pandemic) declaration ends.

Nevada Health Link and the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS), which oversees eligibility for Nevada’s Medicaid program, are working together to ensure all Nevadans have access to health insurance in the state. If you’re currently relying on Medicaid, you are encouraged to review the following to ensure you receive updates related to your coverage. 

Report all life changes and keep contact info updated

You will need to update your contact information with the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS), Nevada Medicaid office. People may lose coverage because their contact information is not up to date, and they cannot receive important notices. They may also no longer be eligible due to changes in income or other reasons and need to transition to other insurance. 

There are four ways to update your information:

1. Fill out the Update My Address online form: https://dhcfp.nv.gov/UpdateMyAddress/

2. Visit a Medicaid Program Office

3. Complete this form and send to welfare@dwss.nv.gov 

4. Call: 1-800-992-0900
