For Nevada Medicaid, you’ll get a renewal notice from the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Service (DWSS) telling you it’s time to renew. For Nevada Check Up, it will come from the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and policy (DHCFP).
You must complete the documents that come with the notice and send them back to the address listed in the renewal notice.
Medicaid Renewals Starting Now!
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) stopped the renewal process in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This meant Nevada Medicaid members could keep their coverage even if they had not renewed it. Now CMS has started the renewal process again, and Medicaid Members are required to take action.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions Medicaid Members often ask about renewing:
For the past few years, people enrolled in Medicaid did not have to renew their health coverage during the pandemic. Now that that has ended, yearly renewals are once again required. It is important that Nevada Medicaid Members' contact information be up-to-date to receive important information by mail.
