Mobile Integrated Care Units

BRINGING HEALTHCARE TO YOU

Trillium is launching seven mobile integrated care units, thanks to funding provided by NCDHHS through the federal Substance Abuse Treatment Block Grant. We are partnering with PORT Health, Monarch, Coastal Horizons, and RHA to service individuals living in 16 counties. 

Trillium saw the pandemic as a reminder of the health care disparities experienced by people of color, rural residents and Medicaid-insured individuals across the 27 counties we serve. In response, we launched the One Community Initiative to address the stress, anxiety, depression and general mental health challenges caused by the pandemic.

Across the United States, we’ve also seen an influx of mental health crises amid the anxiety and grief of the pandemic. Unfortunately, emergency rooms have been serving as a primary resource for many suffering from these crises, particularly those who are uninsured, Medicaid-insured, or people of color. 

Each provider will cover the following areas:

Various LME-MCO logos

  • Monarch: Halifax, Gates, Northampton, and Nash Counties
  • PORT: One unit for Chowan, Perquimans, and Pasquotank Counties; one unit for Dare and Carteret Counties; third unit will provide disaster relief to work with shelter response efforts after hurricanes, etc.
  • Coastal Horizons: One unit for Columbus and Brunswick Counties, second unit for Bladen County (joining Trillium’s catchment area February 2022)
  • RHA: One unit for Beaufort, Hyde, Tyrrell and Washington Counties (including Ocracoke Island)
     

While specific services at each unit may vary based on provider or local demands, they are expected to offer the following:

  • Mental health screenings
  • General health checkups
  • Vaccinations (such as flu or pneumonia)
  • Substance use disorder treatment
  • Traditional therapy
  • Assertive outreach
  • Medication management via telemedicine
  • Care management
  • Peer support

In the future, we hope the mobile clinics will be able to provide medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals experiencing opioid addiction.

Trillium is proud to continue providing innovative accessibility solutions, like the mobile clinics, as a Tailored Plan provider under North Carolina’s Medicaid managed care system. We will share information here as we announce each of the mobile integrated care unit openings.
