learn more about Medicaid Renewals
When the pandemic began in early 2020, Congress enacted several laws to help people and states get through the public health and economic crises. Federal law recently changed, and now, redetermination for eligibility will start April 1st. Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will start evaluating whether Medicaid enrollees are eligible to continue to receive Medicaid coverage. During this process DHHS will be sending notices to current Medicaid enrollees and may be requesting information or explaining changes in coverage.
Are you currently enrolled in Medicaid? Starting April 1st, 2023, Nebraska Medicaid will resume normal operations and “unwind” the continuous coverage requirement that was in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nebraska Medicaid will begin by trying to automatically renew a member’s coverage. If it is known that a member has not moved and has not had a change in income, Nebraska Medicaid can automatically renew.
Make sure that Nebraska Medicaid has your most up-to-date contact information. This includes your mailing address, email, and phone number.
You may receive a printed letter explaining your eligibility for Medicaid. This letter will tell you how to renew your coverage.
If you are still eligible, fill out the renewal form and return it to Nebraska Medicaid at the address provided. There is a specific due date and timeframe that this form needs to be filled out. You can also visit www.accessnebraska.ne.gov to sign in to your account to renew your coverage online. You may need to provide updated information about your income, family size, and other personal details. Help is available and you can receive free assistance.
