Medicaid is an important program that provides much-needed health care coverage to many low-income Nebraskans, which ​supports the health and wellbeing of Nebraskans and our communities. ​For over fifty years, Medicaid has provided health care coverage to hundreds of thousands of Nebraskans, helping children in Nebraska succeed in school and keeping our state’s communities healthy.  We fight to protect Medicaid and advocate for policies that help Medicaid work better for Nebraskans.

And now, Medicaid expansion provides coverage to even more adults that would not have been eligible for Medicaid in the past. Learn More about Medicaid expansion at our dedicated page.
