Nevada Check Up is a state-designed program that provides comprehensive health care coverage to low-income Nevada children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have been uninsured for 6 months prior to application.
- A child whose family has a household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level is eligible for Nevada Check Up. For a family of three, this works out to an annual income of about $34,340 or a monthly income of about $2,862.
- Eligibility is determined for one year unless the child moves from the state, enrolls in Medicaid, is found to have other insurance coverage, or becomes financially ineligible. Children who travel outside the state would be covered in case of an emergency.
- Benefits include well-baby/well-child visits, prescription drugs, mental health benefits, immunizations, and dental and vision services.
- Applications for the Nevada Check Up are available statewide at various locations including: Family Resource Centers, Schools, Boy & Girls Clubs, Welfare District Offices, and other designated outreach sites throughout Nevada. You can also request that an application be sent to you by mail by calling (877) 543-7669.
