IMPORTANT NOTICE--MEDICAID MANAGED CARE IS ON HOLD!
For now, North Carolina will not move Medicaid to Managed Care. Current Medicaid beneficiaries will keep getting uninterrupted Medicaid services from the State the way they do now and will continue to receive care from their current primary care provider (PCP). Beneficiaries do not need to choose a health plan at this time. The State will inform beneficiaries when Managed Care restarts and when they will need to choose a health plan. Your coverage will not change at this time.
You do not need to do anything now. You do not need to choose a health Plan. You will get a letter in the mail to confirm you will keep the Medicaid coverage you have now.
You can still see us as long as we are listed as your PCP.
If you have further questions you can call North Carolina Contact Center at 1-888-245-0179. The Center is open Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
