Medicare

Do you know if you qualify for Medicare Insurance?

There are several Medicare health insurance options. Our patient support specialists at Bluestem Health can answer any Medicare questions that you may have. We want you to know that we value our Medicare patients and we have six locations for your convenience. All of our locations accept Medicare insurance.

According to medicare.gov, Medicare is the federal health insurance program for:
  • People who are 65 or older
  • Certain younger people with disabilities
  • People with End-Stage Renal Disease

*Permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD

Medicare insurance and preventive care.

Our priority at Bluestem Health is to keep our patients healthy, so we place a significant emphasis on preventive healthcare. Medicare Part B covers many screenings so you can always be on top of your health.

According to medicare.gov, the following preventive screenings are covered by Medicare
  • Medicare Part B
  • Alcohol misuse screenings and counseling
  • Bone mass measurements
  • Multi-target stool DNA tests
  • Diabetes self-management training
  • Mammograms
  • Nutrition therapy services
  • One-time preventive visit
  • Tobacco use cessation counseling
  • Yearly wellness exams
  • Shots: Flu shots, Hepatitis B shots, Pneumococcal shots
  • Screenings: abdominal aortic aneurysm, barium enemas, colonoscopies, fecal occult blood tests, depression, diabetes, Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection, Hepatitis C, HIV, colorectal cancer, cervical and vaginal cancer, cardiovascular disease, glaucoma tests, obesity, prostate cancer, lung cancer

Cost-efficient Quality Care and Medicare

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), we use the highest standards in the care we provide to anyone in our community. Bluestem Health works diligently to offer its services cost-efficiently so that healthcare is affordable for our patients.

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.

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.
