Requesting Provider Feedback

​Nebraska Medicaid is currently reviewing our mental health and substance use disorder service definitions. We are seeking provider input.

The Medicaid service definitions describe Nebraska Medicaid's coverable services. The project includes reviewing current service definitions and comparing them to the Medicaid State Plan, mental health and substance use disorder state regulations, and the Division of Behavioral Health's Continuum of Care Manual.

The goal is to simplify and standardize the service definitions across the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and align the MSDs with state and federal guidelines.
