Nebraska Medicaid: Temporary per diem rate increase for nursing and assisted living facilities

Nebraska Medicaid is increasing per diem rates by $20 per day for nursing and assisted living facilities for dates of service between Jan. 1, 2022, and June 30, 2022. You don’t need to do anything to receive this adjusted payment. We’re in the process of updating our system to reflect the $20 increase. We’ll adjust the claims you’ve already submitted and pay the increased rate for future claims when the system is updated. You can expect the temporary rate increase payments to begin within 30 days.
