Spring Conference

Spring Policy Forum 2019: Pathways 2 Progress

June 10 – 11, 2019

Why Attend: Approval for the North Carolina 1115 Medicaid Waiver is now complete.  Four private managed care organizations have been chosen and regional implementation for the Medicaid Standard Plan is set to begin this November with statewide implementation next February.  All systems are go, but there are still questions, details and issues to be addressed.  Many providers are in the process of contracting with the Prepaid Health Plans (PHPs), credentialing remains, and the Enrollment Broker is preparing to work with individuals to choose their benefit plans.  It is a brave new world for NC and our healthcare systems.  What are the Pathways 2 Progress?  By addressing topics such as Value-based care, Standard Plan operations, progress on the Medicaid Tailored Plan, effective use of technology, service challenges, and the effective utilization of Peer Support, this conference attempts to provide guidance to support stakeholder readiness for a managed care system that integrates all aspects of healthcare.
