North Carolina Council of Community Programs: Emerging Horizons Conference


  • Pinehurst Resort 80 Carolina Vista Drive Pinehurst, NC, 28374 United States (map)

The NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has set out a plan to implement whole person Medicaid managed care in North Carolina over the next several years. This includes integrating physical and behavioral healthcare for individuals in the MH/IDD/ SUD population with the highest levels of need while ensuring the integrity of specialty services through a defined service management process. At this time it is unclear what the proposed management organizations will look like or how they will operate given the regions outlined in the plan. One thing is clear, however; DHHS intends to move quickly to begin implementation of the program design. This year’s conference will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from both state and national Medicaid leaders and from those already offering statewide managed care plans across the country. Speakers will also address innovations on a number of hot button topics – value based care, social determinants, the opioid crisis, care integration and much more.
