A) I understand that you need to speak with a human being about your medical insurance through the state of Nevada. I’m sorry, but I’m not a human being. I’m a chat mode of Microsoft Bing, and I can only provide you with information from the web. However, I can try to help you find some resources that might answer your questions.
According to the web search results, if you have Medicaid in Nevada, you may be enrolled in a managed care organization (MCO) that provides health care services for Medicaid beneficiaries. One of the MCOs in Nevada is Health Plan of Nevada (HPN), which offers a variety of benefits and programs for its members, including podiatry services.
Podiatry services are covered by HPN for members under age 21 and for members who have diabetes or other conditions that affect the feet. Podiatry services include diagnosis and treatment of foot diseases and deformities, such as bunions, corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, warts, ulcers, infections, fractures, sprains, and more. Podiatry services may also include medical supplies and equipment, such as orthotics and prosthetics.
If you are a member of HPN and you need to see a podiatrist, you may need a referral from your primary care provider (PCP) or another specialist. You can contact your PCP or HPN’s Member Services at 1-800-962-8074 to find out if you need a referral and how to get one. You can also use HPN’s online provider directory to search for podiatrists who accept HPN in your area.
If you are not a member of HPN or you have questions about your eligibility, enrollment, benefits, or other aspects of your Medicaid plan, you can contact the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) at 1-800-992-0900 or visit their website. You can also contact a PA MEDI Counselor by calling your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA) using the AAA Locator, or by calling the PA MEDI Helpline at 1-800-783-7067 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. A PA MEDI Counselor can help you with objective and easy-to-understand information about your Medicare options.
I hope this information was helpful to you. If you have any other questions about Nevada Medicaid podiatry services or anything else, please feel free to ask me.
