NCDHHS Extends Open Enrollment for Medicaid Beneficiaries, Announces Statewide Move to Managed Care in February

Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) — September 03, 2019
On September 3, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced that it will delay the November 1 go-live date for Standard Plans until February 1, 2020. This means that all 100 counties across the state will now implement Medicaid Managed Care on the same date, rather than in two phases as previously planned.

This phase of Medicaid transformation affects individuals who currently receive their physical and pharmacy health benefits, as well as some benefits for mild to moderate mental health conditions, through the traditional fee-for-service model. Effective February 1, 2020, those individuals will be enrolled in one of five commercial health plans.
