> Nevada Check Up (SCHIP)
Nevada Check Up is the State of Nevada's Children's Health Insurance Program. It provides low-cost, comprehensive health care coverage to low income, uninsured children 0-19 years of age who are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid. The Nevada Check Up program does not require the participants to pay co-payments for any services provided. The program does, however, charge quarterly premiums to the family. The premium is determined by family size and income.
