Provider Outreach to Members

Some providers are encouraging patients to sign up for managed care (i.e. the Standard Plans) and listing the health plans they have contracted with to help patients with health plan selection. We welcome this engagement from our providers, but please note that not all Medicaid members are moving to managed care now. We understand receiving letters or other information from providers to sign up for a health plan is causing some confusion for our members who are not required to sign up at this time.

Members who are not required to sign up include those on the Innovations Waiver or people receiving intensive mental health or substance abuse services.

If you hear from your provider conducting outreach, we encourage you to call the NC Medicaid Enrollment Broker at 833-870-5500 (TTY: 833-870-5588). The enrollment broker can tell you if you are required to sign up for Medicaid Managed Care at this time and can help you with making an informed choice if you are.

Specialized Inclusive Program

The Specialized Inclusive Programs Initiative provides summer day camps, after-school programs, and adult day programs for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

Specialized Inclusive Programs

The program will follow a family co-op design. Parents and caregivers along with the community will be invested in the programs. Parents and caregivers have many talents that can assist in making programs for their children cost-effective and sustainable. A family co-op requires that parents are active participants with their children in the programming along with siblings. Parents of children who participate may engage in general maintenance roles like cutting grass or housekeeping, or they may run special events or even teach classes. Some parents may volunteer time to chaperone events or outings. The list of opportunities is endless.

Specialized Inclusive Programs will be an opportunity to engage the community in an inclusive setting designed for everyone to be successful.
