Nebraska Medicaid To End Behavioral Health Carve-Out, Effective July 1, 2017

News Report | August 16, 2015

As of July 1, 2017, Nebraska's Medicaid program will be reformed to include both physical and behavioral health in its Medicaid health plans, eliminating the behavioral health carve-out. The state plans to release a request-for-proposal (RFP) for three managed care organizations (MCOs) by the end of 2015. The MCOs will be at risk for physical and behavioral  health care, and pharmacy. No additional details about the RFP are available at this time; however, to implement the integrated approach, the state will need to amend its existing Medicaid waivers and the state plan.
