Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska

For over 40 years, NACO has partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska to provide affordable, comprehensive health coverage to county officials, employees, and their family members.

  • The NACO plan is fully funded and fully reserved
  • There are no accumulating hidden charges or costs associated with the plan
  • There are no broker commissions included in the monthly premiums
  • Nearly 90 percent of premiums are used to pay coverage benefits
  • Any premiums paid in excess of claims paid are placed in the NACO Health Trust Fund, which may only be used to "buy down" subsequent rate increases, effectively holding down the costs for all NACO plan members

Counties who offer health insurance through the NBS/BCBSNE pool plans enjoy additional benefits such as:

  • $15,000 Term Life insurance policy, included for free
  • $15,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment, included for free
  • Long-Term Disability (provides up to 60% of salary, monthly maximum benefit is $1,500), included for free
  • Double Indemnity if killed in the Line of Duty
  • Free COBRA administration
