Understanding Medicaid

By understanding the specific qualifications for Medicaid and what it entails, you can navigate the application process more effectively and secure the healthcare coverage you need. Medicaid is a lifeline for many families, ensuring that they have access to essential healthcare services. Financial barriers often prevent access to medical services, leaving many individuals and families without the care they need. This joint federal and state program works to bridge the gap by providing healthcare services to millions of low-income Americans.

Do you qualify for Medicaid?

To be eligible for Medicaid, individuals must meet the following required criteria.

  • Income Limits: Medicaid eligibility is often determined by the individual’s or family’s income level. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expanded Medicaid eligibility, which resulted in more low-income individuals and families eligible for coverage.
  • Household Size: The size of your household is a key factor in determining whether you qualify for Medicaid. In Nebraska, according to, you must have an annual household income that is lower than the following amounts:
1 person$19,392  (before taxes)
