9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
State Library/Archives and History Building

At this meeting, nearly 50 beneficiaries, providers and other stakeholders registered to share brief comments on how to create a healthier North Carolina through Medicaid reform. The Fiscal Research Division of the N.C. General Assembly will present a review of Medicaid spending review.

The advisory group was instructed by the General Assembly to serve as a forum for stakeholder input and to ensure transparency in the Medicaid reform process. The information will be used by the Department of Health and Human Services as it develops a proposal to reform North Carolina's Medicaid system. DHHS will present its proposal to the General Assembly March 17, 2014.

Medicaid reform has three objectives mandated by the legislature:

  • Create a predictable and sustainable Medicaid program for N.C. taxpayers,
  • Provide care for the whole person by uniting physical and behavioral health care
  • Increase administrative ease and efficiency for N.C. Medicaid providers.
