A North Carolina superior court judge last week upheld an earlier ruling that dismissed requests to halt the state’s Medicaid managed care transformation, which has been in limbo since contracts were awarded in Feb. 2019. A statewide enrollment period will begin March 15 and run through mid-May. About 1.6 million of the state’s 2,418,324 Medicaid beneficiaries will be enrolled in plan offerings from AmeriHealth Caritas, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, Centene Corp. and UnitedHealthcare. The managed care plans will officially launch July 1 of this year.
