It’s hard to believe the Medicaid Managed Care launch is upon us. The past year and a half we have experienced many challenges to be sure. You can rest assured your Northwest AHEC Practice Support team is here to help you navigate these changes. Below are some new resources NCDHHS has provided to help you and your practice as they launch Medicaid Managed Care.
Medicaid Transformation Provider Services and North Carolina AHEC are conducting a series of Virtual Office Hours for providers beginning in March 2021. These sessions offer an interactive format for providers to have their questions answered.
The NC Medicaid Provider Services team is partnering with NC AHEC to host virtual Health Plan Meet and Greet sessions. NC Medicaid consultants and health plan representatives will be available to address your concerns and questions about the transition from Medicaid fee-for-service to Medicaid Managed Care. Virtual Meet and Greet sessions are structured as conversations between providers and Managed Care Health Plan staff with a Q&A for participants.
Check out the Provider Playbook: Medicaid Managed Care page for some valuable information to help you in the transition to Medicaid Managed Care. See the readiness resources below. Please review the updated materials to ensure you are ready for the July 1, 2021 launch.
