What is our purpose?
To connect, educate and support diverse organizations interested in or affected by Medicaid transformation in North Carolina
With the pending transition to Medicaid Managed Care from NC Medicaid’s current fee-for-service model, it is important for all North Carolinians – particularly Medicaid beneficiaries and community-based organizations that engage with them – to have the most current and accurate information about what is happening, an understanding of how Medicaid transformation may impact their communities, and opportunities to improve the system by sharing consumers’ thoughts, concerns and experiences.
What do we value?
- Community-driven Solutions
- Trust and Relationships
- Transparency and Accountability
- Shifting Power Dynamics
- Shared Leadership
What will you gain by being a part of this statewide effort?
- Accurate, up-to-date information related to Medicaid transformation
- A community of diverse organizations that are committed to improving the health of North Carolinians
How can you strengthen the work of the Collaborative and ensure its success?
- Be an active participant by regularly attending meetings in person or via teleconference. Members of the Collaborative will help to determine the frequency and duration of meetings as well as key topics of discussion.
- Ensure the bilateral transfer of information. Share with other Collaborative members what you are hearing from consumers about the effects of Medicaid transformation, and take information learned during Collaborative meetings back to your organization and the communities you serve.
- Serve as an ambassador by sharing the benefits of participating in the NC Collaborative on Medicaid Transformation with other organizations and inviting new stakeholders to the table.

November 13, 2020 – Can Implementing Medicaid Managed Care Address Health Disparities? Looking Back at Other State’s Experiences and Looking Forward to North Carolina’s Transition
Presenters: Brigette Courtot and Emily Johnston, PhD – The Urban Institute
With support from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, researchers from the Urban Institute are examining North Carolina Medicaid’s transition to a managed care and value-based care environment to help determine whether this shift results in more equitable access to care and health outcomes, particularly for pregnant women and children of color and those living in underserved or rural areas. The research team will describe their mixed-methods study design, which includes multiple rounds of qualitative data collection and a pair of quantitative data analyses to set a baseline for measuring the effects of Medicaid reforms on health outcomes. Researchers will also present information from their literature scan of how the shift to Medicaid managed care has influenced health outcomes and disparities in other states.
