Medicaid Managed Care: Go Live 7/1/21
Most Medicaid beneficiaries will switch to managed care plans that take effect July 1. You should receive a letter prompting you to choose a plan if you are affected by this change. Go to ncmedicaidplans.gov to choose a plan and select Community Family Practice as your PCP. Be sure to choose a plan that your PCP is in network with.
You have from March 15-May 14 to select your PCP and plan. After July 1, you will also have 90 days to change your plan if needed.
There are 4 plans offered in our area: Wellcare, Amerihealth Caritas, United Health, and Healthy Blue (BCBS). Right now, Community Family Practice is in network with all 4 plans.
COVID-19 Vaccine Updates:
Two COVID-19 vaccines have recently been approved and will soon be available to primary care offices to offer to our patients, but first it will be available to populations at highest risk for contracting COVID-19. This includes frontline healthcare workers and long-term care staff and residents. It is not yet available to primary care offices, but once it is, we will be updating our website and Facebook page and will reach out to patients directly via the Patient Portal or phone calls to let you know we're ready to schedule those appointments. We encourage our patients to continue taking precautions (masks, social distancing, washing your hands/using hand sanitizer) to keep yourselves and your loved ones well.
