Nebraska officials are urging Medicaid clients in 83 counties to enroll in a managed health care plan before June 26.
Officials with the Nebraska Department and Health and Human Services say clients should choose one of two expanded health plans before the deadline, and select their primary care provider.
Arbor Health and CoventryCares of Nebraska are offering the health plans. Department officials say Medicaid clients should check to see if their medical provider is listed.
Medicaid clients in 10 southeast Nebraska counties are already enrolled in managed care, and are not affected by the change.
The counties not affected are Cass, Dodge, Douglas, Gage, Lancaster, Otoe, Sarpy, Saunders, Seward and Washington.
The other 83 counties are moving to managed care on July 1.
