Medicaid in Nevada
Nevada Medicaid plays a vital role in improving the health and well-being of some of the state’s most vulnerable. In Clark and Washoe Counties, Medicaid is administered through the managed care model.1
All MCOs are accredited and regularly reviewed by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA). Additionally, the Nevada Legislature and Department of Health and Human Services provide oversight to MCOs and the Medicaid program.
In Nevada, MCOs are held to high standards by the state and are accountable for the quality of care they administer.
