Increased Insurance Coverage
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide health and long-term care coverage to more than 2.0 million low-income children, pregnant women, adults, seniors, and people with disabilities in North Carolina. Medicaid is a major source of funding for safety-net hospitals and nursing homes.
In August 2017, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services released a detailed proposed program design for transforming the state Medicaid and NC Health Choice programs to managed care.
NCHA's response to the proposal and additional materials are available in the Member Resources section.
