Effective January 1, 2021, NC Medicaid and NC Health Choice is temporarily covering Healthy Opportunities screenings to encourage providers to gain capacity for screening Medicaid beneficiaries for unmet health-related resource needs and referring them to appropriate community-based resources, prior to the launch of Medicaid managed care.
Medicaid recently released the Temporary Clinical Policy Modifications: Payment for Health Opportunities Screening and Referral.
Recently, NC Division of Health Benefits (NC DHB) released some new provider resources on their Provider Playbook: Readiness page to help you prepare for the July 1, 2021 launch of Medicaid Managed Care.
