Beginning in June 2019, North Carolina will go through a Medicaid ‘Transformation’ or in its formal name, Medicaid Managed Care. Within this transition, the normal fee-for-service model will change to a managed care model. According to NCDHHS, this new plan will:
- Deliver whole-person care through coordinated physical health, behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disability and pharmacy products and care models
- Address the full set of factors that impact health, uniting communities and health care systems
- Perform localized care management at the site of care, in the home or community
- Maintain broad provider participation by mitigating provider administrative burden
The transformation process will have multiple phases and will roll-out for different regions at different times. See the timeline and map below to view your region and roll-out phase.
