Medicaid

Am I eligible for the Nebraska Medicaid program?

Are you looking for Medicaid in Lincoln, NE? The Nebraska Medicaid program focuses on preventive care and access to healthcare for all people in our community, including some of the most vulnerable populations.

You may be eligible if you are:
  • An individual 18 years of age or younger
  • A pregnant woman
  • A parent or caretaker
  • A former foster care youth

What is CHIP?

The Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, is an expansion of Medicaid as healthcare coverage for qualified children who are without other health insurance and who do not qualify for Medicaid. It provides the same services covered under Medicaid in Nebraska.

What Services Can I Get Under Medicaid?

Our providers are proud to serve our Medicaid insured patients with a variety of high-quality healthcare services.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, Bluestem Health participates in Nebraska’s Medicaid Program. There are a variety of health services we can provide for our patients:
  • Dental Services such as cleaning of teeth, fillings, and X-rays.
  • Complete Health Checkup for individuals age 20 and younger, including complete physical examination; immunizations; necessary lab tests; health education; hearing checkups; well-baby, well-child, as well as Head Start, school, and sports physicals.
  • Laboratory and X-ray Tests
  • Outpatient Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services for Child, Adolescent, and Adults
  • Screening Mammogram

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 Medicare, SNAP, ADC, and Open Enrollment through the Health Insurance Exchange. A partnership with Legal Aid of Nebraska connects patients with legal assistance.
