NCDHHS Extends Open Enrollment for Medicaid Managed Care through May 21, 2021. Read about it in this announcement.
In NC Medicaid Managed Care, most beneficiaries choose their health plan and primary care provider (PCP) or Advanced Medical Home (AMH), which is a type of primary care provider. During open enrollment from March 15 through May 21, 2021, beneficiaries will enroll in a health plan and select their PCP/AMH. If a beneficiary does not select a health plan, they will be automatically enrolled in one by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). If a beneficiary does not select a PCP/AMH, then the health plan will assign one to them. First, DHHS will auto-enroll the beneficiary in a health plan. Once the health plan receives the beneficiary information, the health plan will auto-assign a PCP/AMH to the beneficiary.
