North Carolina Shifts to Medicaid Managed Care

On July 2, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper signed S.B. 808, funding the shift of Medicaid from fee-for-service to a managed care system in North Carolina. Passage of this bill is the final measure in a process that began in 2018 when the state got federal approval to move to a managed care system. Budget issues had stalled implementation of the changes, but now the process to shift the program will begin immediately.
