OMAHA, Nebraska – On Friday, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services announced that three bids for Heritage Health coverage for Nebraskans have been accepted.
The selected Medicaid health plans for the upcoming years are Molina Healthcare of Nebraska, Nebraska Total Care, and United HealthCare of the Midlands.
According to the announcement, there are five-year contracts with potential two-year renewals.
“We are extremely pleased with all of the bids we received. Ultimately, while we had to choose three, all five bids were impressive and showed high regard for the Medicaid program and Nebraska.” “By meeting with the bidders in person, we were able to emphasize to them what matters the most to Nebraskans. We believe it is critical that the voices of the people we serve are heard.”
In October, there will be a listening tour as Nebraska Medicaid collaborates with health plans to transition to new contracts. The expected date of the changeover to new contracts is January 2024.
