Tailored Plan Launch is Delayed
To ensure beneficiaries can seamlessly receive care on day one, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is delaying the start of the NC Medicaid Managed Care Behavioral Health and Intellectual/ Developmental Disabilities Tailored Plans (Tailored Plans) scheduled for Oct. 1, 2023. A new start date for Tailored Plan has not been announced.
Beneficiaries set to receive care through the Tailored Plans will continue to receive behavioral health services and I/DD and TBI supports through their Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organizations (LME/MCOs) and physical health and pharmacy services through NC Medicaid Direct, just as they do today. More information can be found here.
