Applying for Medicaid
If you cannot afford private health insurance due to a disability, you may qualify for Medicaid in Las Vegas. A permanent condition that prevents you from obtaining gainful employment is considered a disability in our state. Your health and the health of your family is one of the most important things to consider, and if neglected, can impact the rest of your life. Medicaid was created to provide medical insurance to in-state residents, U.S. nationals, citizens, permanent residents or legal aliens. If you qualify as disabled but you have low income, you should apply for Medicaid with the help of an experienced lawyer. Nevada Medicaid is only available to low-income individuals and families that meet certain criteria. These eligibility standards are based on Federal and state law. If approved, Medicaid will pay funds directly to your insurance provider so that you may receive quality health care.
