North Carolina Seeks Input to Transform MedicaidThe North Carolina State Department of Health and Human Services has enlisted the help of an outside agency to improve its Medicaid system, according to the News Observer.
State officials are looking for ways to change how providers are paid and make the more than 1.5 million disabled and poor recipients more responsible for their medical payments, according to the report.
The agency has set a March 15 deadline for finding ways to pay providers based on results, not how often they see a patient.
