The University of North Carolina’s Injury Prevention Research Center (IPRC) is conducting an evaluation of the NC Medicaid Lock-In program (MLIP). An assessment of this program is critical to understanding whether this policy is having the desired effect of reducing costs and improving patient care. Findings will have important implications for building an evidence base for other states using MLIPs or similar programs, as well as improvements to the NC program.
UNC IPRC is interested in hearing from providers who have cared for “Locked In” Medicaid patients. You may qualify, if you:

  • Are currently a licensed medical provider practicing in NC
  • Accept Medicaid billing
  • Have patients currently or previously enrolled in the NC MLIP

Providers who complete a brief phone interview will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift certificate. There will be 5 winners!  Each responding provider will have an equal chance of receiving the gift certificate.
You will be asked to complete a very short interest survey online (link below) and then a brief, 20 minute phone interview at a prearranged time that is convenient for you. These interviews will explore constructs that relate to patient enrollment and changes in patient service utilization or prescriber/dispenser practices.
Read this brief fact sheet for more information about this study.   All data will be presented in aggregate and all information shared by you will remain confidential.
