Nebraska Medicaid is committed to collaborating with the four Federally recognized Tribes headquartered in Nebraska – the Omaha, Ponca, Santee Sioux, and Winnebago – in addition to other Indian healthcare providers that serve Nebraska Medicaid members. This partnership aims to ensure that Tribal members covered by Nebraska Medicaid have access to comprehensive healthcare services and culturally appropriate care.
Medicaid & Long-Term Care (MLTC) has a dedicated tribal liaison who is the point of contact for Tribal Healthcare Providers and Tribal Medicaid Members. The tribal liaison provides important information and updates through communications and consultations with the Tribes.
Nebraska's Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) also have their own tribal liaisons. Their contact information is listed below. Learn more about Nebraska's Heritage Health and MCOs.
MLTC meets on a quarterly basis with representatives of the Tribes, the CMS Native American contact, the MCO tribal liaisons, and other Tribal stakeholders. These meetings are a place for all parties to work collaboratively and discuss relevant Medicaid/CHIP matters that impact the Tribes and Tribal members.
The monthly meetings are separate from tribal consultations and are a place for Tribal providers to voice their questions and concerns about the program and work collaboratively with Nebraska Medicaid and the MCOs.
Tribal Medicaid monthly calls will be held on the first Wednesday of every month.
