N.C. Medicaid Reform Waiver Draft

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services released the detailed outline of a proposed Sec 1115 Medicaid waiver request yesterday, doing so much earlier than the June 1, 2016 deadline imposed by last year’s budget. I am travelling in England and haven’t given it a read, but will get back with thoughts as I am able.

Rose Hoban is a great source of news on this and all things health policy in North Carolina.

“This is really the end of the beginning; this is the first hurdle,” said Dee Jones, who was hired to lead the new Division of Health Benefits, which will run the new Medicaid program. “There’s a lot of work to be done.”
