Community Care of North Carolina
Under the Community Care of North Carolina Program (formerly known as Access), North Carolina is building community health networks that are organized and operated by local community physicians, hospitals, health departments and departments of social services. By establishing provider networks, the Program is putting in place the local systems that are needed to achieve long-term quality, cost effective, access and utilization objectives in the management of care for Medicaid recipients.
These fourteen networks include more than 1,450 medical practices and 4,500 medical providers (94% of PCPs) across North Carolina are working with their local health departments, hospitals, departments of social service and other communty based agencies to better manage the care of 1.3 million Medicaid recipients. Of those, approximately 193,626 are in the Aged, Blind, and Disabled category.
By independent analysis, the Community Care Program has saved billions of tax dollars while providing quality, cost effective care for Carolina Access Medicaid, Health Choice, and dual eligible Medicaid/Medicare enrollees since 2006.
Carolina Community Health Partnership Network
Carolina Community Health Partnership (CCHP) is one of the fourteen Community Care of North Carolina networks serving Cleveland and Rutherford Counites. We serve over 29,000 Medicaid, Health Choice, and dual eligible (Medicaid/Medicare) clients. Approximately eighty-six primary care providers in 29 medical practices participate in the CCHP network. Three hospitals, two departments of social services and two health departments partner with the CCHP network to improve quality of care. Local behavioral health providers also collaborate with the CCHP network to better manage clients with both behavioral health and medical needs.
Our RN care managers help our Medicaid recipients access needed medical care and services to enable them to have better health outcomes.
