On Thursday, October 8th, 2020 there will be two Nebraska Medicaid Representatives on site from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm in the main hospital lobby. They will be available for anyone wanting to sign up, ask questions, or submit documents for the Nebraska Medicaid Expansion program. Please remember to wear a mask and social distance at all times.
Medicaid coverage is available for Nebraskans age 19-64 who earn up to 138% of the federal poverty level (about $17,000 a year for a single person).
Coverage includes services like doctor’s office visits, hospital visits, and prescription drugs. Some individuals may additionally qualify for dental, vision, and over-the-counter drug coverage. This expanded Medicaid Program is called “Heritage Health Adult” (HHA) and was approved in 2019 by Nebraska voters through Initiative 427.
