As a Nebraska State employee, you get access to Direct Primary Care through Strada Healthcare. Through this option, you get unlimited access your Strada provider digitally or in-clinic with no copays or extra costs for covered services.
This benefit comes with the High Deductible Health Plans (the "Standard" and "Select" plans) through your State benefits. These are the lowest-cost health coverage plans the State offers. Keep these options in mind during the State Open Enrollment.
We want to eliminate any barriers between you and your primary care provider. So we’ll never charge you a copay and can cover almost all of your primary care visits. As a patient of Strada Healthcare, here are a number of benefits you will enjoy.
"My Strada Provider (Stacie Gilroy) within the first few visits probably knew more about me than my other doctor did in my previous two years of visiting them. You can become an excellent diagnostician when you take the time to actually get to know your patients."
"From when I started with Strada, I’ve come down 56 pounds, got away from blood pressure medication, and my HgA1c came down from greater than 10 to a safe level. I now lift weights three days a week and walks three and a half miles a day.”
"I walked into the clinic with my daughter who was limping with a twisted ankle and literally within 60 seconds her ankle was being treated. They know me by name and truly care about me and my family’s health.”
“Strada has been a game changer for my family. It allows us to focus on productive health rather than being nickel & dimed with doctor bills.”
The State of Nebraska gives you an option to select a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with the “Standard” or “Select” health plan option. Both of these plans include Strada’s Direct Primary Care. Your health plan will cover things like specialist visits, hospital stays, surgeries, etc. Your Direct Primary Care will cover more day-to-day care at no extra cost to you.
The “Standard” and “Select” plan options give you the lowest monthly premium payments possible offered from the State. Keep these options in mind during the upcoming State Open Enrollment.

Specialist visits, Dental, Vision and Hospital Care are not included in your Strada membership and can be covered by your health insurance policy. Your annual lab work is included in your membership, but any additional labs that you might need we offer at extremely reduced cash prices.
