LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A computer systems problem could delay some Nebraskans in obtaining health coverage under the Medicaid program.    

Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Division of Medicaid says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services informed the state that the federal government can't yet provide account transfer service between Nebraska Medicaid and the Federal Facilitated Marketplace.    

The delay affects people who apply for health insurance through the new online Marketplace and are determined to be potentially eligible for Nebraska Medicaid. People can enroll in private health insurance coverage through the Marketplace starting Tuesday.  A one-month delay is expected.
