Save the date and join in on Thursday, January 20 for the next webinar on Medicaid Managed Care "Hot Topics".
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) transitioned most
Medicaid beneficiaries to NC Medicaid Managed Care (Standard Plans) on July 1, 2021.
Effective Oct. 22, 2021, NC Medicaid-enrolled providers can bill code 99401 with HM modifier for telephone outreach to unvaccinated Medicaid beneficiaries. The goal of the outreach is to educate the beneficiaries on the vaccine and assist them in scheduling an appointment, ideally in the office where the outreach is originated.
Help us respond to your health workforce needs!
The NC Center for Health Workforce is working with NC AHEC, the UNC Sheps Center and other stakeholders to take action to address North Carolina’s health workforce needs. An initial step in this process is to gather your concerns about recruitment, retention and skill needs of your workforce. We’ll use this information to work with policymakers and educators to develop responses and solutions.
The Northwest AHEC Practice Support Team is committed to promote understanding and improve the orientation of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) for North Carolinians. In order to support these goals, we will share a publication on SDOH each month on our Practice Support Blog.
