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 qualified 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 will assist individuals to live in a setting they choose and continue to be contributing members of their community. Nebraska’s aging network includes eight Area Agencies on Aging.
