Are you currently enrolled in Medicaid? Starting April 1st, 2023, Nebraska Medicaid will resume normal operations and “unwind” the continuous coverage requirement that was in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nebraska Medicaid will begin by trying to automatically renew a member’s coverage. If it is known a member has not moved and has not had a change in income, Nebraska Medicaid can automatically renew.
- If an automatic renewal cannot be completed, Nebraska Medicaid will mail a printed renewal form to the member. These forms are mailed between 30 to 60 days before the member’s renewal must be completed.
Access to quality, affordable, and equitable health care can be life-changing. Nebraska has expanded Medicaid benefits to low-income, able-bodied adults of working age (19-64 years old). You must meet income requirements to qualify. Benefits include doctor services, emergencies, hospitalization, maternity and newborn, dental services, vision services and more. Find DHHS fact sheets, flyers, rack cards, and more on expanded Medicaid at dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/Medicaid-Expansion.aspx.
