LB 460 – NebraskaStatus: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2017
CHANGE PROVISIONS REGULATING THE TRANSPORTATION OF CLIENTS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AND OTHER AUTHORIZED AGENCIES AS PRESCRIBED: LB 460 makes changes with respect to non-emergency medical transportation (NET) under the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Service’s Division of Medicaid and LongTerm Care. Under the bill, the Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care will be given the authority to manage routes of carriers contracted to provide NET services. The providers of NET services would still need to meet the requirements of certification and maintain that permit with the Public Service Commission.
LB 460 would also permit the Department of Health and Humans Services to provide NET services through a Medicaid-managed care organization under contract with the department as well as maintain the current ability of contracting with a NET broker.
