State of Nevada offers FREE Assistance for Health Concerns

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]


It comes as no surprise that the landscape of health care is changing both nationally and at the state and local level . It now seems certain  that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will affect the delivery of health care for everyone.

In these uncertain times, it’s good to know that the State of Nevada can help. The Governor’s Office for Consumer Health (GovCHA) has been a trusted partner since its inception in 1999. When Nevadans need help researching or resolving issues with their health plan, GovCHA is there. Concerns may be in many areas, such as eligibility (for benefits), billing, grievances, or claim denials. “We assist the Consumer by helping them understand their rights and responsibilities regarding health insurance” explained Janise Holmes, LSW MPA, Interim Governor’s Consumer Health Advocate.

“We provide information to Nevadans seeking health care, insurance coverage or prescription drug assistance,” Ms. Holmes added. One example of GovCHA assistance is helping to explain complicated hospital bills. “We also help people understand the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and how the law may (or may not) benefit them.

The Governor’s Office vision is to be Nevada’s premier resource for Consumer Advocacy and health care information, Holmes explained.

You can contact GovCHA for more information by calling 702-486-3587 or by using their toll-free number 1-888-333-1957.
