Due to emergency declarations across Nebraska following this spring's natural disasters, the State will be providing extensions for disability and level of care redeterminations for children. These extensions apply to children (0-17 years old) living in a FEMA-designated disaster area any time from March 8-September 8, 2019.

The extension schedule is as follows:

Original Redetermination
Due Date
Extension Due Date
March 9th through April 30th October 31st
May 1st through June 30th November 30th

This extension only applies to disability redeterminations which DHHS must review or child institutional level of care redeterminations. Redeterminations completed by March 8, 2019, are not affected by this extension.

Services will continue during the extension period. If increased services are needed during the extension, please contact your services coordinator.
