This announcement is for existing Raleigh Pediatrics patients who are currently enrolled in NC Medicaid and NC Healthchoice. (**Updated 9/4/2019)
Raleigh Pediatrics is participating with two of the new Medicaid Managed Care plans: WellCare of North Carolina and United Healthcare Community Plan. We are NOT participating with any of the other plans at this time.
A large number of patients receiving North Carolina Medicaid benefits including NC Healthchoice have received a letter from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that explains the changes in your Medicaid coverage.
If you received this letter, you are required to enroll in one of the new Medicaid Managed Care plans by December 13, 2019. (This is a delay from the previous deadline) If you do not enroll, you will be auto-assigned to one of the plans after that date. We do not want any of our existing patients be assigned to one of the plans that we are not participating with.
We are asking all patients who have received this letter to take steps to enroll in the new Medicaid plans before the auto-assignments begins in December.
The attached information explains step by step what you must do to enroll in one of the new plans.
