Medicaid and Medicare

Information

At Bluestem Health, we welcome all patients, including those with Medicare for insurance and those insured through Nebraska’s Medicaid Program. Our commitment is to provide you with easily accessible, high-quality, integrated health services when and where you need them.

What Medicare and Medicaid Patients Can Expect at Bluestem Health

Bluestem Health providers follow a “health home” model of care and our Medicare patients will benefit greatly from this model. What is a health home? It is not a physical space; it is a group of healthcare and service providers working together to make sure our Nebraska Medicare and Medicaid patients get the care and services needed to stay healthy.

Navigating Medicare Insurance or Medicaid

We understand that your health needs are unique and that you may require a variety of services throughout your lifetime. At Bluestem Health, we involve you as we develop your plan of care. We know how difficult and stressful it can be to navigate Medicare and the healthcare system. We make every effort to ensure you are connected to a multidisciplinary team of experienced and dedicated healthcare providers, mental health and substance abuse providers, along with needed medications, social services, and other community programs that can support and assist you.

Why we Accept Medicaid and Medicare

Our approach is to integrate and coordinate all primary and acute care, chronic disease management, behavioral health, and long-term services and support as we treat the whole person, no matter their insurance.

Resources Beyond the Usual

Bluestem Health provides our patients with resources and community events far beyond our typical healthcare services. We have a dedicated team that will work with you to find additional community services, including assistance in applying for resources such as Medicaid, SNAP, ADC, and Open Enrollment through the Health Insurance Exchange. A partnership with Legal Aid of Nebraska connects patients with legal assistance.

To serve Lincoln’s diverse population, we also employ a staff of interpreters that provide in-person interpretation services rather than communicating over the phone, which can dramatically improve a patient’s experience during their healthcare visit. In addition to English, our interpreters are fluent in Spanish, Arabic, Kurdish, Karen, Burmese, Vietnamese, and American Sign Language.

Bluestem Health is here to help you with your Nebraska Medicaid and Medicare questions and to connect you with a provider that will give you the best possible care. Connect with us at (402) 476-1455.
