Medicaid coverage is available for Nebraskans age 19-64 who earn up to 138% of the federal poverty level (about $17,000 a year for a single person).
Coverage includes services like doctor’s office visits, hospital visits, and prescription drugs. Some individuals may additionally qualify for dental, vision, and over-the-counter drug coverage.
