Message from the CEO - June 2019

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — June 13, 2019
I’m excited to share with you that my update this month is bigger than Cardinal Innovations – today I’m focused on the launch of a historic and important collaboration called Care for NC.
#CareForNC is a joint effort between all seven of North Carolina’s local management entities/managed care organizations (LME/MCOs) as well as Benchmarks and the NC Providers Council. Our organizations partner to deliver high-quality behavioral and I/DD care to North Carolinians in all 100 counties. More importantly, we are advocates for the families and communities we serve. We are here to raise awareness for the countless people whose lives have been changed and communities that have been strengthened by the services provided by the system. This partnership has one goal: to help ensure continued stability and continuity of care for North Carolinians and the well-being of our communities.
As you’ve heard me talk about before, our state’s public safety net system is at risk. One aspect of the #CareForNC campaign is to educate folks on the risk and real human impact of further state funding cuts.
Below I’m sharing with you an advocacy toolkit and more information about this campaign, if you have questions or want additional information, please contact our government affairs team. I hope you’ll review and use this information to make your voices heard across the state and with your elected officials at the NC General Assembly.
Together, we can make a difference.
