Upcoming Quarterly Tribal Consultation

Medicaid's next Tribal Consultation quarterly meeting will be held on Thursday, May 16 from 11:00 a.m. ​to 4:00 p.m. ​The meeting will be hosted at the Santee Health & Wellness Center, 110 Visiting Eagle St, Santee, NE 68760. Virtual attendance is available at https://sonvideo.webex.com/meet/jessie.edwards​.  

Contact Jacob Kawamoto at Jacob.Kawamoto@nebraska.gov for the meeting information.

For minutes of past consultations, see below.

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. 

End Of The Public Health Emergency

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicaid members kept their coverage even if they were no longer eligible. Medicaid returned to its normal eligibility rules on March 1, 2023. Nebraska Medicaid staff will continue to review each member's eligibility. It is very important that Medicaid members make sure their contact information is up to date with Nebraska Medicaid. If Nebraska Medicaid is not able to reach a member, they could unnecessarily lose Medicaid coverage. Please verify or update your and your family's information with ACCESSNebraska.​ Additional resources can be found here​

Tribal Liaison

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.​


The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has a Tribal Liaison representative in each of its divisions (Children and Family Services, Public Health, Behavioral Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Medicaid & Long-Term Care). The Tribal Liaisons collaborate regularly to exchange information and resources, share best practices, and support Tribal partners in Nebraska. Specific contact information can be found on the DHHS Tribal Liaisons Reference document.
