Two helpful benefits of the B2I program are Health Insurance and Monthly Payments.


Health Insurance 

  • You may be eligible for Medicaid health insurance until you're 26 if you aged out of foster care. If you didn't age out, you may still be eligible for Medicaid in Nebraska. Work with your IC to determine if you're eligible for Medicaid and apply for coverage.


Monthly Payments

  • One of the benefits of B2I is the monthly maintenance payment. You'll work with your IC to decide the best living situation for you – with a foster family, on your own, or in a group home.

     Foster Family

  • Each month, the housing payment will be sent to the young adult.

On Your Own 

  • B2I will send all or part of the maintenance payment directly to you, depending how “supervised" the living situation is. Work with your IC on this and your situation will determine how your payment is set up

Group Home

  •  Whether you're in a group home because it's medically necessary, or are just there while you find a more permanent place, B2I will send the monthly payment to the group home.
