Please see the provider bulletin regarding Nebraska Medicaid providers' revalidation. All Medicaid providers enrolled with Nebraska Medicaid as of March 2011 will need to be revalidated. Many Nebraska providers have not completed this process. If providers do not submit their revalidation, their Medicaid eligibility will end November 25, 2016. Providers MUST be enrolled with Nebraska Medicaid prior to finalizing their credentialing and contracting with a Heritage Health plan. Providers who remain unsure of whether or not they are included in this initial revalidation may direct questions to Maximus Customer Service at nebraskamedicaidPSE@maximus.com or 844-374-5022.
