This 1915(b) waiver called the NC MH/IDD/SAS Health Plan provides services to Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Solutions’ five counties, including Cabarrus, Davidson, Rowan, Stanly and Union counties. All individuals with Medicaid coverage from one of the five counties described above will be eligible and enrolled into this plan for their mental health, intellectual/developmental disability and substance use/addiction service needs. The services that are available include current North Carolina State Medicaid services, plus some additional services identified through review of evidence-based practices (what works best) and requests by consumers and families. The NC MH/IDD/SAS Health Plan puts importance on treatment in the most inclusive setting, attention to the whole person, concentrating on each individual’s strengths instead of weaknesses.
The Medicaid Managed Care Waiver for mental health, intellectual/ developmental disabilities and substance use/addictions is called the NC MH/IDD/SAS Health Plan. This plan allows for a waiver of freedom of choice of providers so that Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Solutions can determine the size and scope of the provider network. This Health Plan allows for use of Medicaid funds for alternative services.
The definitions of the services in the NC MH/IDD/SAS waiver are the same as those in the current North Carolina Division of Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities/Substance Abuse Service Definitions Manual (APSM 1026).
