How Can Medicaid Help You?

Medicaid is a healthcare program that was developed to help struggling Americans get the healthcare services they need and in a timely manner. It is used as a lifeline for the 39% of American children that are covered by Medicaid.

Our Medicaid doctors are focused on the well-being of our patients, providing high-quality, family medicine services such as:

For families, Medicaid helps pregnant women with prenatal care and newborn delivery costs. It gives children with Autism access to in-home speech and occupational therapies. Bluestem Health has Medicaid doctors who offer OB and Pediatric services.

People of all-ages may be eligible to receive Medicaid’s financial support from the federal and state level. Asking for help isn’t always easy, but it can be necessary for you and your family.

How Does Medicaid Help People with Disabilities?

Many Americans with disabilities need to stay in a long-term care facility in order to get the help that they need to survive. Medicaid helps them do that. The cost of healthcare can become overwhelming and it’s why the program was created. Medicaid gives those with a disability the opportunity to live out the life that they deserve.

Expansion of Medicaid in Nebraska

Medicaid has expanded in Nebraska to help more people have access to healthcare. If you applied for Medicaid previously and did not qualify, you may qualify now. Medicaid has expanded the income requirements and those benefiting from this change will be Nebraskans whose income is at or below 138% of the poverty level, or approximately $16,000 a year for one person.

  • Heritage Health Adult is the new Medicaid category and it expands Medicaid benefits to low-income, able-bodied adults of working age who are 19 – 64 years old. You must meet income requirements to apply.
  • Most newly eligible Nebraskans will start with the Basic Benefits Package which includes doctor services, emergencies, hospitalization, maternity and newborn, wellness visits, and more.
  • Newly eligible Nebraskans who are 19 – 20 years old, pregnant, or medically frail will receive the Prime Benefits Package, which is the Basic Benefits Package, plus dental services, vision services, and over-the-counter medications.
