Contracts are intended for service providers addressing food security, medicare assistance, transportation, in-home services, caregiver support services, evidence-based programs, and ancillary services.

Service Categories: The Aging and Disability Services Division has defined seven (7) service categories. The service categories are defined based on the overall benefit to the target population and could include more than one service. 

  • NV Care Connection: This service helps individuals navigate the range of long-term services and supports
    options available to them. It also helps individuals maintain services through the provision of case management. 
  • Medicare Assistance Program: Service delivery includes outreach, education, and counseling in order to assist and empower Medicare beneficiaries to make informed decisions that meet their healthcare needs, optimize their access to care and affordable services, and increase their awareness to prevent, detect, and report healthcare fraud, errors, and abuse. 
  • Transportation: This service focuses on transportation options to access community services including but not limited to medical services, social services, shopping, socialization, and nutrition. 
  • In-Home Services: In-home services can be a variety of services to support individuals living in their own home such as homemaker, companion services and emergency response systems.

  • Food Security: These services focus on increasing food security among older adults including, but not limited to food pantry services. 
  • Evidence Based Services: These services are interventions that educate participants about their health conditions, how to manage them, and/or ways to adopt healthy behaviors to enhance their quality of life. 
  • Ancillary Services: These services are other supportive services that help promote independent living and quality of life in the community. Services in this category do not fall into one of the above categories.
