Public Input

DHHS knows it is crucial to listen to and learn from the people who live and work with Medicaid every day. To develop a proposed program design that is right for North Carolina, DHHS has talked with providers, beneficiaries and advocates, health care experts across the state and the country, leaders in other states who have already transitioned Medicaid programs to managed care, and many others who are interested in improving the health of North Carolinians. DHHS is committed to continuing this partnership.
