DHHS Urges Caution: Unauthorized ACCESSNebraska Website
 
Lincoln – A website not authorized by the Department of Health and Human Services could be an attempt to trick citizens into providing confidential information, according to agency officials.  The website could also deliver viruses or malware to the user’s computer.
 
The true ACCESSNebraska government website is an online application for state economic assistance and Medicaid benefits.  The web address is “www.accessnebraska.ne.gov.” The unauthorized website, which is not affiliated with DHHS, ends in “.com.” 
 
People are urged to be diligent about using the correct government web address.  All DHHS websites end in “.gov” and include the words Official Nebraska Government Website at the top of all webpages.
