Medicaid Family Planning Waiver
On October 1, 2005, the North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance implemented a 5-year demonstration waiver project for family planning services for the citizens of North Carolina. The name of the program is BE SMART. This program is designed to reduce unintended pregnancies and improve the wellbeing of children and families in North Carolina by extending eligibility for family planning services to eligible women between the ages of 19 through 55 and men ages 19 through 60 who meet the eligibility requirements for participation.
