June 1, 2016 - Governor Pat McCrory submitted North Carolina's Medicaid Reform plan (Section 1115 demonstration) application to the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Over the next 18 months or so, CMS will review the application and discuss the reform plan in detail with the Department of Health and Human Services.

Over the next 3 to 4 years, the NC Department of Health and Human Services will work closely with people who receive Medicaid services and their families, and with those that provide Medicaid and NC Health Choice services (like doctors and hospitals) to build the new Medicaid health care system. In the meantime, the Medicaid program will continue as usual and beneficiaries will receive care the same way they do now.

When Medicaid Reform is ready and approved by the federal government, it will be the right health care system for North Carolina – one that puts people first.
