Governor Roy Cooper and NC Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kody H. Kinsley today announced NCDHHS will launch Medicaid Expansion on Dec. 1, 2023, giving more than 600,000 North Carolinians access to health care.
Medicaid expansion will no longer launch Oct. 2 as the North Carolina General Assembly failed to take needed action to meet that date.
With the end of the COVID public health emergency's freeze on Medicaid renewals, restarting the verification of Medicaid participant enrollment has brought many challenges.
The Department of Health and Human Services is delaying implementation of the Behavioral Health and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Tailored Plans. Tailored Plan launch was scheduled for October 1, 2023, but will now go forward at a date still to be determined.
