Task Force on the NC Health Choice Program
In 2003, the Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services asked the NCIOM to convene a task force to study options to ensure the long-term financial viability of the NC Health Choice program given the fiscal constraints of the state budget. The Task Force was asked to explore different options, including changes in enrollment, benefits, utilization, and professional reimbursement rates. The NC General Assembly specifically charged the Task Force with examining health professional reimbursement rates under this program. This report presents the findings and recommendations of the NCIOM Task Force on the NC Health Choice Program.
