Foster Care

Nebraska Total Care provides children involved in Nebraska’s Child Welfare system with unique healthcare coverage that is responsive to their needs and offers support to their caregivers.

Heritage Health - Nebraska Total Care 

To empower those who impact the health and wellness of these children, we offer a Care Management program specifically designed for children in foster care. Our staff are dedicated to helping caregivers navigate the complicated health care and child welfare systems. Nebraska Total Care builds a care plan around each child enrolled in Care Management and partners with agencies throughout the state to coordinate services.

Care Management is available to every child in foster care enrolled with the Nebraska Total Care at no cost to the recipient. To enroll your foster child in Care Management, call 1-844-385-2192 (TTY 711). Choose the Care Managment option. 

While our Value Added Services are available to all Nebraska Total Care members, Care Managment can help members access these services. Value Adds frequently used by children include:

  • YMCA memberships
  • Boys and Girls Club
  • GED testing materials
  • Sports Physicals
  • Weight Watchers (age 18+)
  • Healthy Rewards Program
  • NICU supports 

We invite foster parents to participate in our Member Advisory Council. The council gives members and their representatives the opportunity to share thoughts and recommendations with Nebraska Total Care. 

Nebraska Total Care partners with Envolve PeopleCare™ to offers training for caseworkers and foster care organizations. These trainings are led by licensed providers with experience in addressing the behavioral health needs of children.

Please visit the caregiver training schedule for a list of scheduled training opportunities. You can also request in-person trainings with an Envolve PeopleCare™ trainer.
