Today the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services unveiled its multi-year draft plan to reform the state’s Medicaid program to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Medicaid and NC Health Choice.
As Dee Jones, Chief Operating Officer for DHHS’ new Division of Health Benefits, described it this plan is simply the “end of the beginning” of the reform process.
Read the 69-page draft waiver application to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which outlines how the state will implement Medicaid reform as envisioned in the legislation passed by the General Assembly last fall. Review the PowerPoint slides DHHS Secretary Rick Brajer and his staff used to present the plan to the committee here, and the full report here.
North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) staff is thoroughly reviewing the documents and will provide analysis in Friday’s Bowtie Briefing and next week’s Bulletin, so watch your email and our website for more.
