From time-to-time, we'll share information about policy that is relevant to RHA, our employees, and the people we serve and support.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all North Carolinians.  To help realize these goals, the Medicaid and NC Health Choice programs will be transformed from a predominantly fee-for-service delivery model to managed care in 2019, depending on state and federal approvals. The transformation to Medicaid managed care is the most significant change to the Medicaid program in over 40 years.
