Nebraska Medicaid and Long-Term Care (MLTC) has expanded Medicaid coverage under the Heritage Health Adult (HHA) Expansion program. The HHA program expands Medicaid coverage to adults, ages 19–64, whose income is at or below 138% of the federal poverty level. Heritage Health Adult members are enrolled in managed care plans through the existing Heritage Health program and are eligible for the same benefit package. This includes comprehensive medical, behavioral health and prescription drug coverage as well as vision services, dental services and over-the-counter (OTC) medication benefits.


The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) also has information on the Medicaid expansion available at

  • Promote quality of care
  • Strengthen efforts to reform the delivery of care to individuals covered under Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Plans (CHIP)

  • View most Medicaid and Medicare SNP members’ plans of care and health assessments
  • Enter plan notes and view notes history (for some plans)
  • Obtain HEDIS information for your member population
  • Access information about members admitted to or discharged from an inpatient facility
  • Access information about members seen in an Emergency Department
