NCHA Statement on Medicaid Managed Care Prepaid Health Plan Contract Awards

On February 4, 2019, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced the recipients of contracts to participate as Prepaid Health Plans (PHPs) in Medicaid Managed Care when the program launches in November 2019.

NCHA released the following statement in response:

North Carolina’s hospitals and health systems are the healthcare safety net for North Carolina’s 10 million citizens. While we are disappointed that no provider group got a statewide contract, NCHA and our members are committed to working with payers to ensure that healthcare providers are actively involved and adequately reimbursed to ensure a patient-centered Medicaid program that improves the health of our state’s most vulnerable populations.
