Medicaid Managed Care: Go Live 7/1/21
Most Medicaid beneficiaries will switch to managed care plans that take effect July 1. You should receive a letter prompting you to choose a plan if you are affected by this change. Go to ncmedicaidplans.gov to choose a plan and select Community Family Practice as your PCP. Be sure to choose a plan that your PCP is in network with.
You have from March 15-May 14 to select your PCP and plan. After July 1, you will also have 90 days to change your plan if needed.
There are 4 plans offered in our area: Wellcare, Amerihealth Caritas, United Health, and Healthy Blue (BCBS). Right now, Community Family Practice is in network with all 4 plans.
