NC Health Choice Integrating Into NC Medicaid

North Carolina Session Law 2022-74 directs the NC Department of Health and Human Services to combine the NC Health Choice Program with the NC Medicaid benefit plan. As of April 1, 2023, all NC Health Choice beneficiaries with active eligibility will be moved to Medicaid, providing them access to Medicaid services that are not currently covered under NC Health Choice. Additional benefits include enhanced behavioral health services, Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) services, and non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT). Once children in NC Health Choice are enrolled in Medicaid, they will no longer be subject to cost sharing.
