North Carolina again delays launch of Medicaid managed care tailored plans

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is delaying the implementation of its Medicaid managed care behavioral health and intellectual/developmental disabilities tailored plans until Oct. 1; they had been set to launch April 1.

The department said in a Feb. 27 news release the implementation was delayed to ensure "150,000 people seamlessly receive care on day one." Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organizations — which will operate the plans — will have more time to contract with additional providers to ensure a smooth transition.  

In September, the department pushed the launch date from Dec. 1 to April 1.
