Issued: February 27, 2023

What is happening?
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is delaying implementation of the NC Medicaid Managed Care Behavioral Health and Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Tailored Plans (Tailored Plans) until October 1, 2023.

What does this mean for providers?
The delayed start of Tailored Plans will allow more time to contract with additional providers to ensure a smooth transition for our members.

Partners members will continue to receive their behavioral health services and I/DD and TBI supports through Partners providers and their physical health services through NC Medicaid Direct.

Tailored Care Management will continue during the delay.

How do I get more information?
Partners’ providers can contact their Provider Specialist with questions.

Providers can also visit Partners’ website for more information about Tailored Plans.
