HB 879 – LME/MCO Funds Transfer/Partners Additional Funding

Primary House Sponsors: Rep. Kristin Baker, MD (R-Cabarrus); Rep. Dean Arp (R-Union); Rep. David Willis (R-Union)



This bill appropriates $10M in nonrecurring funds in the 2021-2022 fiscal year to DHHS to be allocated to the local management entity/managed care organization Partners Health Management to be used for staff training and development of its health care provider networks.


When any county disengages from one area authority and realigns with another area authority, this bill also requires a portion of the fund balance and risk reserve of the area authority from which the county is disengaging to be transferred to the area authority with which the county is realigning in a specified manner.
