Advisory Panel for the North Carolina Healthy Opportunities Pilot Service Fee Schedule

The Commonwealth Fund and Manatt Health are convening an expert advisory panel to offer feedback on a groundbreaking effort of the NC of Health and Human Services. Under its recently approved Medicaid 1115 waiver, NC DHHS will launch “Healthy Opportunities Pilots” in two to four geographic areas of the state to test nonmedical, evidence-based interventions designed to improve health and reduce costs for a subset of Medicaid beneficiaries. Pursuant to waiver requirements, NC DHHS will develop a first-of-its-kind Medicaid fee schedule that will define and price Pilot interventions, which will address housing instability, food insecurity, transportation insecurity, interpersonal violence and toxic stress. Prior to pilot launch, the Pilot Service Fee Schedule must be approved by CMS. NC DHHS is seeking a broad range of stakeholder input to inform the development of the Pilot Service Fee Schedule. The Department released a Request for Information in February 2019, receiving invaluable feedback from stakeholders. The panel will convene in the spring of 2019, and interested stakeholders are welcome to attend and observe the panel meetings, which will be held in Raleigh.
