ICYMI: Secretary Brajer Talks Medicaid Reform on 'Capital Tonight'


On June 1, 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 three to four years, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services will work closely with people who receive Medicaid services and their families, and with those who provide Medicaid and N.C. 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.
