LB323 - Change eligibility provisions under the Medical Assistance Act for certain disabled persons

Nebraska

~~“LB 323 amends eligibility criteria for Nebraska’s Medicaid Buy-In for Workers with Disabilities (MIWD) program.  This program allows individuals with disabilities to pay a premium for, or “buy-in” to Medicaid coverage while working and earning an income that puts them over the traditional eligibility threshold.  Current eligibility criteria is outdated and prevents persons who should otherwise qualify from participating in the program.”
