LINCOLN – The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services/MLTC Division will visit communities across the state as part of its upcoming Medicaid listening tour.

“Moving Forward with Medicaid: A Listening Series” will take place across seven cities this October, as well as two virtual options. The listening tour will include a presentation from Nebraska Medicaid that will focus on new information for members, including the newly selected provider contracts and other important updates. After the presentation, time will be reserved in which members of the public can ask questions or give feedback.

“Our listening tour earlier this year reinforced for us the value of regularly hearing from stakeholders,” Medicaid Director Kevin Bagley said. “We want to build on that by sharing our vision for the future of the program and hearing from members and providers about their priorities as well.”
