In September 2015, The NC General Assembly passed a law that directed that the North Carolina Medicaid program switch from a primarily fee-for-service model to a capitated managed care structure. This transition aims to improve care delivery, improve the health of North Carolinians, and pay for value rather than volume. This Medicaid transition has the potential for a significant impact on our practices at UNC Health and all health-systems across the state.
