The ACA will help many currently uninsured Nevadans gain health coverage by providing coverage options across the income spectrum for low and moderate-income people. While almost all of the uninsured in Nevada are eligible for some type of coverage under the ACA, the impact of the ACA will depend on take-up of coverage among the eligible uninsured, and outreach and enrollment efforts will be an important factor in decreasing the uninsured rate. The ACA includes a requirement that most individuals obtain health coverage, but some people (such as the lowest income or those without an affordable option) are exempt and others may still remain uninsured. There is no deadline for enrolling in Medicaid coverage under the ACA, and open enrollment in the Marketplaces continues through March 2014. Continued attention to who gains coverage as the ACA is fully implemented and who is excluded from its reach—as well as whether and how their health needs are being met—can help inform decisions about the future of health coverage in Nevada.

State Neglected Medicare Payments Since 1986

The Nevada Appeal reports the federal government began requiring state and local governments to pay into Medicare in 1986. Budget Director Jeff Mohlenkamp says judges and members of boards and commissions fell through the cracks, and neither the employee nor state share was paid.

Medicare Contractor Changes in California, Nevada, and Hawaii – September, 16, 2013

The good news for our clients is that they do not need to make ANY changes in their Payer Setup to accommodate this change. Our clearinghouse, Capario, is managing this transition. They have done all appropriate testing, and all the necessary changes will be made at the clearinghouse. Nothing needs to be done within OfficeEMR. This should be a seamless transition for our clients.

On eve of Medicare anniversary, seniors in Nevada save $41 million on drugs

People with Medicare in the donut hole now receive discounts and some coverage when they purchase prescription drugs at a pharmacy or order them through the mail, until they reach the catastrophic coverage phase. The Affordable Care Act gave those who reached the donut hole in 2010 a one-time $250 check, then began phasing in discounts and coverage for brand-name and generic prescription drugs beginning in 2011. The law will provide additional savings each year until the coverage gap is closed in 2020.

Second Nevada psych hospital under investigation by Medicaid

An investigation by The Sacramento Bee earlier this year found the Las Vegas hospital had bused nearly 1,500 patients out of state over five years, with roughly 500 sent to California. That investigation was triggered after James F. Brown, who suffered from schizophrenia and depression, was given a one-way bus ticket in February to Sacramento, Calif., where he knew no one. The American Civil Liberties Union and a Sacramento attorney have since filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on his behalf.
