Division of Medicaid & Long-Term Care

On November 6, 2018, Initiative 427, the expansion of the Medicaid eligible population (Nebraskans under the age of 65 whose income is at or below 138 percent of the federal poverty level) was approved by a vote of Nebraska’s citizens. At this time, the eligible Medicaid population remains the same as prior to the ballot measure being passed. Updates will be provided as they become available.

The Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care encompasses the Medicaid Program, Home and Community Services for Aging and Persons with Disabilities and the State Unit on Aging.

Medicaid provides health care services to eligible elderly and disabled individuals and eligible low-income pregnant women, children, and parents. Medicaid provides health care for more than one in every ten Nebraskans.

Additionally, the Division administers non-institutional home and community-based services for individuals who qualify for Medicaid waivers, the aged, adults, and children with disabilities, and infants and toddlers with special needs.

The State Unit on Aging collaborates with public and private service providers to ensure a comprehensive and coordinated community-based services system that assists individuals with living in a setting they choose and continuing to be contributing members of their communities. Nebraska’s aging network includes eight Area Agencies on Aging.
