NC Tracks to go live July 1, 2013
On July 1, 2013 Medicaid and NC Health Choice Providers will use a different billing system: NC Tracks. We want to make sure you are ready for this change! NASW-NC has helped the Department of Health and Human Services develop a provider friendly fact sheet about who is impacted by this change and how they enroll in the new system. For more information and assistance to providers, check out an additional resource: What You Need to Know. We hope all of this information provides you with an easy transition into NC Tracks!
