CCHN-logo_RGB headerCarolina Complete Health Network (CCHN) was formed by the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) for the purpose of establishing, building and maintaining a physician-led network of providers to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in North Carolina.
On January 10, 2017, NCMS, working in conjunction with the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA), announced CCHN had signed a definitive agreement with Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC) to collaborate on a patient-focused approach to Medicaid under the reform plan enacted in the State of North Carolina. Under the agreement, a joint venture, Carolina Complete Health, will be created to establish, organize and operate a physician-led health plan to provide Medicaid managed care services in North Carolina.  CCHN will furnish provider network services to Carolina Complete Health, to serve Medicaid beneficiaries with value-based models-of-care.
As NCMS CEO Robert W. Seligson stated at the time of the announcement: “With the changes taking place in our health care system at the state level with Medicaid reform and new programs at the national level, the NCMS remains committed to ensuring that physicians are the ones making the clinical decisions in the best interest of their patients. Our leadership views this partnership as a unique opportunity to help lead the reform process and to put patients’ needs first.”
