EMS|MC has prepared a fact sheet to assist NC EMS providers to navigate through North Carolina’s Medicaid and NC Health Choice Section 1115 Demonstration Waiver Application submitted by DHHS on June 1, 2016 to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Click the link below to view the sheet.
Please visit the NC Medicaid Reform website https://www.ncdhhs.gov/nc-medicaid-reform to download a copy of the 214 page 1115 Demonstration Waiver Application/cover letter for your review and reference as we begin the three year planning and approval process to reform NC Medicaid. As we await final approval of the demonstration waiver, there is much work to be done. We need to foster partnerships with healthcare partners statewide and continue to advocate for modifications to the current State Medicaid Plan for reimbursement, as well as leverage continued support from the NC General Assembly for community paramedicine pilots across the state. If you have any questions, contact [email protected].
