Background on North Carolina's Medicaid Reform Plan
From the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services


In September 2015, the General Assembly passed Session Law 2015-245, as amended by Session Law 2016-121, addressing a redesign of the North Carolina Medicaid and NC Health Choice programs. The legislation called for most Medicaid services to be delivered using a managed care system instead of the current fee-for-service. The new system would be administered by prepaid health plans that include statewide commercial plans and regional provider-led entities. In June 2016, DHHS submitted a Section 1115 demonstration waiver application to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
