Temporary Provider Rate Increases and Clinical Policy Changes Extended


NC Medicaid is extending all current COVID-19 temporary provider rate increases through Dec. 31, 2021. While the rate increases for providers authorized under SL 2020-4 were set to expire on June 30, 2021, NC Medicaid has discretion to continue these and other temporary rate increases, assuming budget availability. NC Medicaid will continue to provide updates on the status of all rate increases as more information becomes available,. 

As previously communicated in Medicaid SPECIAL BULLETIN COVID-19 #171, COVID-19 temporary provider rate increases applicable in NC Medicaid Direct (formerly known as fee-for-service) will also apply in managed care (Standard Plan PHPs and LME/MCOs). Please see the bulletin for additional details on how the rate increases apply.
