MLTC's Substance Use Disorder (SUD) demonstration waiver allows Nebraska Medicaid to continue covering SUD residential services in Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMDs) for Medicaid-enrolled adults ages 21-64. This demonstration waiver began on July 1, 2019.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved Nebraska's application for a section 1115 SUD demonstration waiver. MLTC has begun the process of implementing this new waiver authority.
