Understanding Your Victims of Crime Benefits
The Nevada Victims of Crime program will reimburse you for expenses you have paid for counseling services after your insurance company pays its part related to the 1 October event. This can include co-pays. We recommend you talk to your insurance company to find out which participating providers are listed and trained as trauma therapists in your local community. For more information about expenses covered by the program, visit its website at voc.nv.gov/VOC/Covered_Expenses.
If you do not have insurance, your benefits have been exhausted, or there are other extenuating circumstances, please contact the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. Our staff will work to connect you with a therapist in your community who can support you at no cost.
