Most Medicaid recipients will participate. They can choose their primary care provider and health plan. There are several plans to choose from.

People who don’t enroll will be placed in a plan automatically. Everyone will get 90 days to make changes.

North Carolina Medicaid is moving away from a traditional fee-for-service program with the shift.
