Most Medicaid beneficiaries must choose a health plan in the NC Medicaid Managed Care program. Some people will stay in NC Medicaid Direct (formerly known as fee-for-service). They will not need to choose a health plan. NC Medicaid Managed Care will send you a letter that tells you if you must enroll.
Even if you chose a health plan in 2019, you will need to choose again. If you don’t choose a health plan, the State will choose one for you. You know your needs best, so it’s better if you choose.
