You have the right to:
- Get free advice over the phone from the NC Medicaid Managed Care Call Center, where someone can inform you whether you have to enroll in a health plan, and which health plan is the best choice for you and your family.
- Get information in your preferred language for free.
- Switch health plans for any reason within 90 days of being enrolled. After 90 days, unless you have a special reason, you cannot change your health plan until your NC Medicaid recertification date.

- Continue to receive the same NC Medicaid coverage and services you receive now.
- Get care from a provider outside your health plan’s network if medically necessary services are not available in the health plan’s group of providers.
- Receive care without interruption when transitioning between health plans or into or out of managed care.
- Ask for an appeal from your health plan if they deny, reduce or stop coverage for health care you need.
