Nationwide Cyberattack on Change Healthcare

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services is aware of the recent nationwide cyberattack on Change Healthcare, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group. UnitedHealth is a provider for Nebraska's Medicaid Managed Care Program. Change Healthcare provides services to all three of Nebraska's Managed Care providers. The Department is working with its Managed Care providers and other stakeholders on this matter to determine if Nebraskans' information was involved. DHHS will monitor the situation closely and provide updates when they become available.

Medicaid to Resume Regular Reviews of Medicaid Eligibility

Following the recent passage of federal legislation, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is preparing to resume regular reviews of Medicaid eligibility. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicaid members have kept Medicaid coverage even if no longer eligible.

Starting March 1, each Medicaid member's current eligibility will be reviewed. It will take approximately twelve months to review all cases.

Medicaid members must ensure their contact information is up to date with Nebraska Medicaid. If information is needed from a member to confirm current Medicaid eligibility, Nebraska Medicaid needs to be able to reach the member. If Nebraska Medicaid is not able to reach the member, the member could unnecessarily lose Medicaid coverage.

Members can make sure their contact information is up to date by logging into their ACCESSNebraska account or calling toll-free (855) 632-7633.
