Piedmont Health Collaborative Meeting - October 17, 2018
North Carolina’s Medicaid program is transitioning from fee-for-service payment model to Medicaid Managed Care in 2019, which is the most significant change to the NC program in over 40 years. Four statewide Managed Care plans will provide coverage for Medicaid beneficiaries.
In preparation for this transition, a Piedmont collaboration invited Dr. Betsey Tilson, North Carolina's State Health Director and DHHS's Chief Medical Officer, to Kernersville to speak about NC’s transformation to Medicaid Managed Care and proposed regional pilots. Providers of human services, health systems and others from across the Piedmont attended Dr. Tilson’s presentation and agreed to collaborate to address social drivers of health (called Healthy Opportunities) and apply to be one of the Medicaid regional pilots.
Under Medicaid’s transformation, 2-4 regional pilots will be chosen to deliver health services that address both medical and social needs of patients. These Pilots must address four categories of Healthy Opportunities: Housing, Transportation, Nutrition and Interpersonal Violence/Toxic Stress. Pilots will include a Lead Pilot Entity to serve as a backbone organization for the pilot initiative. Pilots should cumulatively serve 25,000-50,000 Medicaid beneficiaries and cover both urban and rural communities.
A Second meeting was held November 1, 2018 and determined:
- Healthy Opportunities of the Piedmont will be the name of our region’s pilot proposa.
- Piedmont Triad Regional Council should serve as the Lead Pilot Entity as determined by the stakeholders.
- The Piedmont counties of Forsyth, Guilford and Rockingham were chosen as the initial counties in which Healthy Opportunities of the Piedmont will operate.
