SilverSummit Healthplan Establishes Free Crisis Hotline in Response to Las Vegas Shooting

LAS VEGAS (October 2, 2017) – People across the state are grieving as a result of the shooting that occurred late Sunday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. When a devastating event like this occurs, we come together to offer support to those who are suffering.

SilverSummit Healthplan, in coordination with Envolve Health, established a 24-hour toll-free crisis hotline at 1-877-941-8079 for the Las Vegas community and those affected around the state. If you were impacted by this tragedy and would like to connect to a licensed professional, we encourage you to call 1-877-941-8079. This line is staffed by healthcare professionals offering counseling as well as referrals for additional local resources. This is a free service for the community; you do not need to be a SilverSummit Healthplan member to call. Spanish speaking services are available to callers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Las Vegas and around the state who were affected by this tragedy.
