NC Medicaid Ombudsman Program

The NC Medicaid Ombudsman Program serves members around the state of North Carolina (not just the Trillium catchment area). The Ombudsman Program is a neutral third party that educates members on their rights, answers questions about processes within the system, and works with appropriate agencies with resolutions of complaints and grievances. 

The Ombudsman Program is tasked with: 

  • Serving as a central resource to resolve issues within the Medicaid Managed Care delivery system; 
  • Providing information about NC Medicaid and the Medicaid Managed Care Program; 
  • Support access to care by making referrals to and collaborating with other resources including but not limited to State agencies, Department partners, community-based advocacy, and legal services organizations; 
  • Identifying trends or systemic issues in delivery system performance; and 
  • Supporting the Department’s vision of creating a healthier North Carolina. 

Members and their guardians can reach out to the Ombudsman Program using the contact information below:
