✦ The North Carolina Dept. of Health and Human Services (DHHS) on Sept. 3 said it would not begin phasing in the implementation of its new managed Medicaid program on Nov. 1 and instead deploy a statewide transition from fee-for-service to managed care on Feb. 1, 2020. The transition was initially scheduled to roll out in two phases, but was adjusted “because DHHS cannot implement critical actions to go-live with managed care under the current continuing resolution budget,” the agency explained. DHHS said it has extended open enrollment for beneficiaries in the 27 counties that were scheduled to transition in November. Four managed care organizations will serve the new program statewide; Centene Corp. has a regional contract (RMA 2/7/19, p. 5). Visit https://bit.ly/2lYQNNd.
