Dedicated to Serving Nevada

We are committed to building healthier communities across Nevada in collaboration with State partners, providers, community leaders, and our members. Together, we can create equitable, community-led solutions that improve quality and health outcomes. To continue to drive Nevada Medicaid toward a best-in-class model, we are focused on:

  • Increasing access to primary and preventative care.
  • Advance health equity by reducing disparities and addressing social drivers of health (SDOH).
  • Develop innovative partnerships that transform care and impact population health.
  • Drive a culture of quality that lowers cost, maximizes value, and increases member and provider satisfaction.

Every day we strive to excel in operations and in quality to deliver on the value of Medicaid Managed Care. We collaborate at a local level to build partnerships that remove barriers to care, reduce inequities and support population-level health outcomes. Social and economic factors have a profound impact on health. For that reason, we look to engage providers and community partners to uncover and address local SDOH needs.

Our team is part of the communities that we serve. Our experience living and working in Nevada informs the way serve our members. Our local presence enables us to develop effective solutions that address our members’ unique needs. It is our privilege to work within the Nevada health care system to help people live healthier lives.

Addressing health equity and social drivers of health

Social drivers of health (SDOH), including access to nutritious food and safe, affordable housing, impact health. We work to advance health equity by removing barriers to care, addressing systemic inequities and supporting a modern Medicaid program that meets social, economic and behavioral needs with local solutions. Our health care vision is inclusive of historically marginalized and underserved communities.
