The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all North Carolinians. In support of this goal, the Medicaid and NC Health Choice programs will transition to Medicaid Managed Care in 2019--the most significant change to the NC Medicaid program in over 40 years. 

On October 17, 2018 Dr. Betsey Tilson, North Carolina's State Health Director and DHSS's Chief Medical Officer, spoke to to a group Human Service Providers and stakeholders from across the state to speak about the 1115 Medicaid Waiver which is a part of North Carolina's tranformation plan to a Managed Care System for Medicaid.
