Four health plans now available for 2022 through Nevada Medicaid

Carson City October 22, 2021

Nevada Medicaid is excited to announce that members will have more options when choosing a Managed Care Organization (MCO) health plan in urban Clark and Washoe counties starting January 1, 2022.

MCO contractors now include:
• Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield
• Health Plan of Nevada
• Molina Healthcare of Nevada (New)
• SilverSummit Healthplan

Approximately 75 percent of Nevada’s Medicaid population receive medical benefits through an MCO. With the addition of a fourth MCO for 2022, the new contracts require Nevada Medicaid to distribute members equally among all the MCOs. Members who are assigned a new MCO will be notified in December 2021, with the change in plans effective January 1, 2022. Members will have 90 days from January 1 to review the benefits provided by each MCO and may choose to switch to a different plan. A comparison chart of value-added benefits for each organization and contact information are available at Members that do not switch plans before March 31, 2022, will remain in their assigned MCO until January 1, 2023.

Nevada Medicaid members should ensure their contact information is up to date by calling the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services at 702-486-1646 or 1-800-992-0900. Also, anyone can now receive Nevada Medicaid email alerts by signing up at:
