Important Information

The Department of Health and Human Services is currently in the process of launching a new Medicaid program for the expanded Medicaid-eligible population in Nebraska. At this time, the eligible Medicaid population remains the same as prior to Initiative 427 being passed. Medicaid is currently seeking public comments on its proposed demonstration waiver for Medicaid expansion. 

The Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care (MLTC) oversees the Nebraska Medicaid program, home and community services for the elderly and persons with disabilities, and the State Unit on Aging.

Medicaid provides health care services to eligible elderly and disabled individuals and low-income pregnant women, children, and parents.

The Division administers home and community-based services for individuals who qualify for Medicaid waivers, such as the elderly, adults and children with disabilities, and infants and toddlers with special needs.

The State Unit on Aging works with public and private service providers to assist individuals with living in their preferred settings continuing to be active in their communities.

Nebraska's aging network includes eight Area Agencies on Aging.
