The Counseling Services program is part of the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHFNV) continued effort to improve the quality of life of individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders. NHFNV provides financial assistance to connect eligible community members with counseling services, based on availability of funding.
In response to requests from the bleeding disorders community, the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHFNV) has created a program in collaboration with Nevada Counseling Providers. Providers located in the Las Vegas area and will provide both in-person, tele-health, and group counseling services for all approved applicants.
The program is now available and is funded for one year. More information about our provider partners can be found on their websites:

Eligible applicants are individuals with a bleeding disorder or an immediate family member or designated caregiver of an individual with a bleeding disorder. If your application is approved, NHFNV will pay for up to eight (8) one-hour sessions that may also be renewable upon submission of an additional request in coordination with the Provider. NHFNV will facilitate the funding of the program and follow all federal and state laws, to include HIPAA privacy standards. At no time will NHFNV request or obtain any specific clinical information from the provider, ever. Any information requested will be related to insurance coverage, if applicable, and the documented request for continued services as applicable.
Continued payment of counseling services is dependent upon the amount of funding available. NHFNV will never make a determination regarding the need for counseling services. This is between you and your provider.
This program is not intended to take the place of any current health insurance coverage you may have or any government program you may participate in, to include but not limited to Medicare or Medicaid.
This application is intended to obtain basic information on any health insurance coverage you may or may not have. The questions in this application are used solely to determine you or your child’s eligibility in the NHFNV Counseling Program and will not be used for any other purpose or shared with anyone except the provider that you are referred to for counseling upon approval.
Prospective applicants will need to meet the following criteria:

The applicant will need to contact the provider to schedule an appointment.
