NC DHHS Sending Letters on Medicaid Managed Care Suspension to 900k Beneficiaries
On December 6, 2019, NC Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) began mailing notices to over 900,000 Medicaid beneficiaries.
For now, North Carolina will not change Medicaid to Managed Care. Persons-supported will keep getting Medicaid services from the State the way they do now. Coverage will stay the same and can still go to the same provider they have now. Persons-supported DO NOT need to choose a health plan at this time.
