Medicaid Expansion Program

Medicaid Expansion Program

With new and less restrictive criteria, you may now qualify for Medicaid benefits. If you are age 19-64 and meet other criteria, you may be eligible for the expanded Medicaid coverage program.

Nebraska residents, age 19 through 64, whose income is at or below 138 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible for Medicaid under the Nebraska Medicaid Expansion, Heritage Health Adult Program.  For 2020, this is an annual income of $17,609 for a single person and $36,156 for a household of four.

Heritage Health is the managed care program that manages Medicaid service in Nebraska. It covers those eligible for Nebraska's Medicaid expansion through enrollment in a Heritage Health plan to manage their benefits.
