Value-Added Services

Nebraska Total Care covers all of the medical services that are included in the Heritage Health plan. In addition to those, we offer some additional services to help members be well. These are called Value-Added Services.

Some of these services are available to all Nebraska Total Care members. Others are offered to members that meet certain health criteria. Listed below are some of the additional services that we offer.

These adult immunizations are covered every year:

  • Pneumonia
  • Flu
  • Shingles
  • Meningitis
  • Tdap

An annual membership for the Boys & Girls Club can be covered for age-appropriate members.

Breastfeeding has many healthy benefits for babies. Nebraska Total Care wants to help members who are breastfeeding. We will give a free electric breast pump to any new mother in our plan. We will give:

  • One electronic breast pump per member, per delivery. For multiples (twins, triplets, etc.) only one pump will be provided.
  • Breast pump kit

You can ask for your breast pump at the beginning of your 37th week of pregnancy, until 45 days after your baby is born. Your doctor will need to write a prescription for a breast pump.

The Client Assistance Program (CAP sessions) covers up to five outpatient therapy sessions annually without an Initial Diagnostic Interview. Members can contact providers directly to receive services. 

Nebraska Total Care has a program that gives our members rewards for completing healthy behaviors. You will get your own healthy rewards card. When you go to a check-up or wellness visit, a cash reward is added to your card. The card works like a debit card. It can be used like cash.

How do I get my healthy rewards card?

The first time you do something on the list, a card will be mailed to you. The card is usually mailed within 90 days. It will have your first bonus on it. When you complete other healthy behaviors from the list more will be added.

Keep your card after you use it. Your bonuses will be added to the same card.

What things can I buy with my healthy rewards card?

  • Food and Fresh Groceries: Meats, vegetables, frozen foods, canned goods
  • Baby Care: Diapers, formula, baby clothes, baby toys, car seats
  • Everyday Items: Toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, shaving cream, lotion, sunscreen
  • Household Goods: Laundry detergent, paper towels, tissues, food storage bags
  • Personal Care: Over the counter medicine, feminine care, family planning, first aid
