Nevada prisoners are charged an $8.00 medical copayment, but I wasn't able to find if it is waived for indigent inmates. In federal prisons, co-pays are waived for "chronic care" prisoners, and it seems like Nevada may not charge them either.

"Health care for inmates paid for mostly by Nevada General Fund

Inmates requesting care are charged an $8 co-pay to offset costs

Prison directed care exempted from co-pay (i.e.,chronic disease clinics and maintenance drugs)

Chronic disease clinics and treatment helps manage chronic disease conditions and reduce long term health care costs "
