All health plans offer the same basic benefits and services. Some health plans also offer added services. Standard Plans offer integrated physical health, pharmacy, care coordination and basic behavioral health for most people receiving NC Medicaid. Tailored Plans provide the same services as Standard Plans and provide additional services not available in Standard Plans. These include enhanced behavioral health services, services for a mental health disorder, substance use disorder, intellectual/developmental disability (I/DD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Tailored Plans are responsible for managing two of the State’s Medicaid Section 1915(c) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers: the North Carolina Innovations Waiver for individuals with I/DD and the TBI Waiver for individuals with a TBI:
Alliance Health is the only Tailored Plan that currently offers TBI Waiver services.
