Medicaid and Nevada Check Up are available to qualifying federally recognized American Indians and Alaska Natives.
You can apply for Medicaid or Nevada Check Up even if you filed for an exemption from the shared responsibility payment. See if you qualify for Medicaid coverage.
If you're eligible for services from the Indian Health Service or urban Indian programs (known as I/T/Us), including Contract Health Services:
You don't have to pay Medicaid premiums or enrollment fees.
You don't have to pay out-of-pocket costs for Medicaid services.
Certain Indian resources and payments aren't counted for Medicaid and Nevada Check Up eligibility, making it easier for some people to qualify.
You can continue to get services through an I/T/U even if the I/T/U is not a provider in your program's managed care network.
