The Heritage Health Adult (HHA) program expands Medicaid coverage to adults, ages 19–64, whose income is at or below 138% of the federal poverty level. HHA members are enrolled in managed care plans through the existing Heritage Health program.

Benefit tier requirements

Unlike existing Medicaid-eligible individuals participating in the Heritage Health program, HHA members have a tiered benefit system with all eligible members receiving either Basic or Prime benefits.

  • Basic benefits include comprehensive medical, behavioral health and prescription drug coverage.
  • Prime benefits include Basic benefits plus vision, dental and over-the-counter medications. Heritage Health Adult members will receive Prime benefits if they’re one or more of the following:
    • Medically frail
    • Ages 19 or 20
    • Pregnant

Medically frail criteria

Several individuals eligible for HHA will have comorbidities (underlying health conditions), undiagnosed or uncontrolled mental health disorders and social determinants of health that may be barriers to improving their health. Individuals who are determined to be medically frail by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will receive Prime benefits. A member enrolled in HHA with Basic benefits can request a review by DHHS for medically frail status. DHHS will notify the member on whether they qualify for medically frail status. A medically frail determination is effective for either one or three years, depending on the individual’s diagnosis.

Diagnoses/conditions that can lead to a medically frail determination include:

  • A disabling mental health disorder
  • A chronic substance abuse disorder
  • A physical, intellectual or developmental disability with functional impairment that significantly impairs one from performing one or more activities of daily living each time the activity occurs
  • A disability determination based on Social Security criteria
  • A serious and complex medical condition
  • Chronically homeless as defined by the United States of Housing and Urban Development

Care provider responsibilities

Nebraska DHHS uses an attestation form to determine if an HHA member is medically frail. If you’re a care provider with diagnosing capabilities within your scope of practice, and you have a patient you believe meets the medically frail criteria, you can complete the Medically Frail Attestation form and send it to DHHS using one of the following methods:

  • Online: Upload it to dhhs.ne.gov/pages/accessnebraska.aspx
  • Email: dhhs.medfrailreview@nebraska.gov
  • Mail: Nebraska DHHS
    Attn: Heritage Health Adult Medically Frail Determinations
    P.O. Box 95026
    Lincoln, NE 68509


Nebraska DHHS also has information on the Medicaid expansion available at dhhs.ne.gov.

Taking action and making a report is an important first step. After your report is made, we will work to detect, correct and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care system.
