Improving the Healthcare System for Communities Across Nebraska


The Centene Foundation and Centene’s Nebraska health plan, Nebraska Total Care, are partnering with the Health Center Association of Nebraska to establish Project Access, a program to improve patient experience and increase access to health services while expanding network capacity. The Foundation and Nebraska Total Care will provide over $3 million over three years in support of the project.

The project’s statewide partnership with federally qualified health centers (FQHC) expands the use of technology and increase the number of healthcare providers to deliver healthcare services to even the most remote parts of the state of Nebraska. Funding will be made available to FQHCs that aim to recruit healthcare workers in underserved areas, optimize clinical operations and meet patients where they are through methods including telehealth.

The initiative also focuses on recruiting and retaining healthcare providers. This will be done in part by developing partnerships with local colleges, high schools and other stakeholders to create a pipeline for future healthcare workers. With Project Access, more Nebraskans across the state will have greater access to healthcare services.
