Enrollment Opens for NC Medicaid Managed Care

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — March 18, 2021

Earlier this week, the NC Department of Health & Human Services (NC DHHS) launched statewide open enrollment for Medicaid Managed Care. This included letters sent to thousands of Medicaid recipients who are being asked to enroll in one of the five Standard Plans being offered.

However, some people who receive Medicaid will not need to select a new health plan. If you are currently an Innovations Waiver member, your services and coverage are not changing—you will stay with your current LME/MCO. Cardinal Innovations will also continue to cover services for its members with serious mental health conditions, severe substance use disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, or traumatic brain injury.

It is also important to understand that eligibility for Medicaid in North Carolina is not changing.

The current open enrollment period for Standard Plans ends on May 14, 2021. Standard Plans will launch on July 1, 2021. Behavioral Health/IDD Tailored Plans are scheduled to launch on July 1, 2022.
