In September 2015, North Carolina passed a law to improve how people receive Medicaid in our state - the first major Medicaid Reform change in 40 years. Under this law, Medicaid will have a better way for people to get quality care, and improve the health of patients and our communities, while holding down costs.

Over the next 3 to 4 years, the NC Department of Health and Human Services will work closely with people to receive Medicaid services and their families, and with those that provide Medicaid services (like doctors and hospitals) to build the new Medicaid health care system. In the meantime, the Medicaid program will continue as usual and beneficiaries will receive care the same way they do now.

Twelve public hearings will be held throughout the state in March and April 2016. Union County has been chosen to host one of the hearings on March 31st from 2pm to 4pm in the Department of Human Services Auditorium.
