This announcement is for existing Raleigh Pediatrics patients who are currently enrolled in NC Medicaid. (8/9/2019 – We will update this post as more information is available)
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 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 September 15, 2019. If you do not enroll, you will be auto-assigned to one of the plans after that date. If you are assigned to a plan that Raleigh Pediatrics does not participate with then on November 1, 2019, you will no longer be eligible to be seen at Raleigh Pediatrics.
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 September.
The attached information explains step by step what you must do to enroll in one of the new plans.
