Carson City, NV - April 08, 2014

The Nevada Division of Insurance (Division) will be hosting a series of Network Adequacy Listening Sessions. The purpose of these listening sessions will be to solicit informal feedback from the public, provider communities and insurance providers as to their informal concerns regarding Network Adequacy for health plans and policies being sold in Nevada. 

 

“The issues surrounding network adequacy are complex and will impact consumers in Nevada significantly as the Division develops a regulatory framework,” said Insurance Commissioner Scott J. Kipper. “We believe it’s important to hear from all Nevadans, be they consumers, doctors, hospitals or insurers in these informal meetings.”

 

Topics discussed will include network adequacy for HMO and non-HMO plans; special considerations for rural community networks; and so called “narrow” networks.

 

For more information about the topics to be discussed please visit http://doi.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/doinvgov/_public-documents/News-Notices/Regulations/Issue-Brief-on-Network-Adequacy.pdf.

 

Following the informal feedback received during these informational sessions, formal regulation workshops and hearings will be held.

Sessions will be held at the following locations, sessions in Reno and Elko are pending, please check the Division of Insurance website at doi.nv.gov for more details:
