What you get with Nevada Check Up
We help your children get the services and support they need, plus special extras just for being our members. Our extra benefits are designed with kids in mind.
There are no copays for covered benefits and services.
Maintaining good health is important. With Anthem, you go to one main person for your health care. He or she can be a doctor, a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant. This person is called your primary care provider or PCP. Anthem has a large network of doctors and nurses who help our members.
Even kids can experience problems with depression, anxiety, or alcohol and drug abuse. We’re here if your child needs help. We have doctors, therapists and counselors to help with behavioral health needs. All behavioral health services and treatments are private and don’t need a referral from your PCP.
Members get eye exams once every 12 months as part of your Anthem benefits. You don’t need a referral from your PCP for eye care benefits.
Nevada Medicaid members under 21 also get eyeglasses or contact lenses if medically necessary. Members can call EyeQuest at 1-800-787-3157
(TTY 1-800-466-7566) for help finding an Anthem eye doctor in your area.

You get a wide range of prescription and over-the-counter medicines when you choose Anthem.
How to get your prescriptions
Getting your prescriptions filled is easy. Simply take your written prescription to a plan pharmacy or ask your doctor to call it in. Be sure to show the pharmacy your Anthem member ID card.
It’s good to use the same pharmacy every time you fill a prescription. That way, your pharmacists will know about problems that could occur when you’re taking more than one drug. If you use more than one pharmacy, you should tell each pharmacist about all the medicines you’re taking.Find a pharmacy

Preferred drug list
We have a list of commonly prescribed drugs your doctor can choose from. It’s called a Preferred Drug List (PDL). Covered drugs include prescription drugs and certain over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. There are no copays for drugs listed on the PDL when you have a prescription from your doctor. Your benefit includes many OTC medicines when you have a prescription from your doctor.
Your doctor may need to get preapproval from us for certain drugs. You’ll also need preapproval for brand-name drugs when generics are available. Your doctor’s request should tell us why a specific drug is needed and how much is needed. Drugs listed on the PDL with a PA beside them need preapproval. You can email and ask us for an exception at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Common Over-The-Counter Medicines
Use our searchable formulary to find brand-name and generic drugs that are listed on your PDL.
You can search for your drug by doing any of the following:
- Typing the name (at least first three letters) of the drug in the search box
- Using the A-Z list to search by the first letter of your drug
- Clicking on the therapeutic class of the drug
