a condition caused by being reassigned to a different Medicaid plan. Symptoms may include feelings of confusion and uncertainty. The best treatment is to choose a new Medicaid plan.
You can switch to Anthem before March 31
Effective January 1st, 2022, the state of Nevada assigned many Medicaid members to a new health plan. The new plan may not be the one you picked for yourself or your family. And you may not have the same doctors or extra benefits as before. Your health plan is your choice. If you want a new health plan or to go back to the plan you had before, now is the time — and it’s easy to do.
How to switch to Anthem
You can switch your health plan in one of these ways:
Send an email to Nevada Medicaid.
Make sure to include your name and Medicaid ID, and the names and Medicaid IDs of the main insurance holder and any children in the home.
