N.C. Medicaid bill

Here is the text of the bill to create Gov. McCrory’s Partnership for a Healthy North Carolina (his proposed comprehensive Medicaid reform). It is only two pages long and mostly sets up time lines (final roll out of new system by 2018) and general outlines of the aspirations of the reform effort only. The bill envisions a 1115 Medicaid waiver of some sort (“or other federal authority”), but there are so few details that this is mostly an aspirational document…though the goal seems to be to provide 2-4 “entities” through which beneficiaries would get all of their services, including nursing home coverage for the dual eligibles. It is difficult to evaluate this definitively with so few details.
