Important Payment Information

To pay for training programs offered by fbstNebraska, you will need to have a fbstNebraska profile and be logged into the fbstNebraska website.

The Lincoln–Lancaster County Health Department accepts Cash, Debit/Credit Card, and Pre Paid Debit/Credit Card payments. If you are not able to pay using the FBST Nebraska online option (processed by the City of Lincoln NE), you can visit the health department – 3140 N Street, Lincoln NE 68510 – during their normal business hours to make a payment in person.

Online payments originating from FBST Nebraska are processed by the City of Lincoln, which ONLY accepts credit and debit cards. Gift cards or pre–paid cards are not accepted.

If your payment has failed: Verify that the card number, expiration date, security code, and billing information are correct before entering a second time. If your payment fails, it will look like money has been taken out of your account. On transactions where the zip code or the security code was incorrect, the credit card/bank will put a hold on the amount of that transaction. Usually this will show up as a 'Pending Transaction' but not all banks will show that status. The credit card/bank will release those funds automatically in 1 to 3 days. If access to the money held by these pending transactions is needed, please call the credit card/bank to request release of these funds.

Repeated error transactions will draw down on your credit limit each time. Please do not re-enter the same information or it will have the same error result.
