Attend our FREE Medicaid Managed Care Clinic to learn about NC Medicaid’s transformation to managed care. On July 1, 2021, approximately 1.6 million North Carolinians who receive Medicaid benefits were enrolled into Prepaid Health Plans (PHPs) due to NC Medicaid’s transformation from fee-for-service to managed care. We will be discussing these recent changes, how they may impact you, your rights, and how to get the information and help that you need. At the clinic, you will view a live presentation. An attorney from Legal Aid of North Carolina’s Medicaid Appeals Technical Team project will be available to answer general questions. Sign up for the clinic using the form below.

The clinic will provide you with general legal information and guidance only. The clinic will not provide you with specific, individual legal advice. If you need more help after the clinic, call our Helpline at 1 (866) 219-LANC (5262) to apply for help.

If you have questions about getting the care that you need through NC Medicaid, contact the NC Medicaid Ombudsman. The NC Medicaid Ombudsman is an independent organization that provides education, guidance and referrals to ensure that the more than two million North Carolinians with Medicaid coverage are able to access the health care and services they need.

You can contact the Ombudsman when:

  • You are not getting the care that you need.
  • You have questions about a notice or bill you have received.
  • You have already talked with your health care provider or health plan and have not been able to solve the problem.
  • You have general questions about the complaint or appeal process.
