Why work for the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska?

The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska offers the opportunity to work for a tribal government, unique even among other tribal organizations. The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska has no reservation land base, operating instead within a designated service area covering twelve counties in Nebraska, one in South Dakota, and two in Iowa, with office locations in Niobrara, Norfolk, Lincoln, and Omaha, Nebraska, and Sioux City, Iowa. Tribal employees provide services to Ponca Tribe of Nebraska citizens, and citizens of other tribes within the community.

The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska strives to offer employees a benefits package that is as competitive as possible with other organizations of similar size and resources. By providing this benefit package, the Ponca Tribe hopes to enhance our employees’ personal and work life, and to support their well-being as well as that of their families.

A third category, network negotiated rates and historical net prices for prescriptions drugs has been delayed while the department considers further guidance.  To comply with this rule BlueCross BlueShield  is providing the following link https://www.bluecrossmn.com/mrf
