Am I eligible for Medicaid?

What is Nebraska Medicaid?

Medicaid helps low-income individuals and families get health care benefits and long-term services and supports for those who need them. Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a health insurance program for children of families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to afford private insurance. With Medicaid expansion in Nebraska, more adults ages 19-64 qualify.

Healthy Blue is a health plan that serves Nebraska Medicaid members. We help coordinate and manage your health care needs.
