Provider Transition to Medicaid Managed Care
NC AHEC has partnered with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and Division of Health Benefits to help transition healthcare providers to Medicaid Managed Care. We are providing on-site comprehensive Medicaid Managed Care education and assistance to healthcare providers across the state. More information and resources are also available on the NC Medicaid playbook website for providers.
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Health Benefits and North Carolina AHEC are offering two monthly evening webinar series to help prepare providers, practice managers, and quality managers for Medicaid Managed Care going live on July 1, 2021. Registration information is available here.
The Medicaid Managed Care webinar series on the Advanced Medical Home (AMH) program will provide Medicaid primary care practice staff and clinicians with more information on North Carolina’s AMH model and how to function at the highest AMH Tier possible when Medicaid Managed Care goes live in July 2021.
NC AHEC has also partnered with NC HIEA to provide NC HealthConnex training. NC HealthConnex is the state designated health information exchange that will enable you to more effectively manage population health and clinical outcomes.
