Nebraska Medicaid Program May Cut Benefits by $28M

Nebraska Medicaid officials are considering a proposal to cut roughly $28 million from the state's Medicaid program by limiting ome benefits and charging a $50 co-pay for non-emergency visits to the ER, according to an Omaha World-Herald report.

Other cuts would limit home health care, personal assistance and private duty nursing services and the number covered of behavior health visits to 60 per year per beneficiary.

The announcement of the cuts, made by Nebraska's Medicaid Director Vivianne Chaumont, also warned additional cuts could be possible if federal funding is reduced.
