Overview

Nevada Medicaid is health insurance that helps many people who can't afford medical care pay for some or all of their medical bills. This program is available only to certain low-income individuals and families in Nevada who fit into an eligibility group that is recognized by Federal and state law. Medicaid does not pay money to you; instead, it sends payments directly to your health care providers.
