Stakeholder Meeting Information 

DD Rate Reform
The Division is working to assess and improve Nebraska's current Medicaid Waiver rate structure to ensure appropriate reimbursement. Information can be found on our rate reform page. This page will continue to be updated as the process continues and we want to ensure that you, our stakeholders, have the most recent information.
Regulation Drafts for Public Comment
The Division is in the process of writing new regulations. We are not yet in an “official” public comment period, but are providing working drafts for stakeholder review on a public comment page. The working draft will continue to change as input is received. We want to ensure that you, our stakeholders, have maximum opportunity to review and make suggestions.

National Core Indicators (NCI)
We want to improve services in Nebraska. Your opinions and feedback can help! Nebraska is participating in a National Core Indicators (NCI) project survey that assesses the quality of life for adults receiving services from the Division.

If you are an adult receiving DD services, or someone in your family receives DD services, read our announcement or visit the NCI website to find out more!
