Special Medicaid open enrollment

Staff Report

The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP), Nevada Medicaid, announces Nevada is bringing on four Managed Care Organizations and holding a special Open Enrollment for approximately 460,000 Nevada Medicaid enrollees participating in managed care.

The special open enrollment began April 1 and goes through June 30 of this year to allow members to choose from the new plan options.

“We want to remind Nevadans covered by managed care that there are now four health plans to choose from: Aetna Better Health of Nevada, Amerigroup Community Care, Health Plan of Nevada and SilverSummit Health plan,” said Marta Jensen, Acting Administrator of DHCFP. “We look forward to the opportunity to assist Nevadans covered by managed care with their health coverage needs.”

Reading the information from each of the four organizations will help individuals choose the Managed Care Organization that is best for you and your family. Having four plans allows additional choices and options for value added benefits that are above and beyond the normal Medicaid benefit package.
