ALLIANCE BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE TO BECOME ALLIANCE HEALTH

Alliance Behavioral Healthcare, the public behavioral health managed care organization (MCO) for Durham, Wake, Cumberland, and Johnston counties, is changing its name to Alliance Health. The new name will be incorporated gradually into Alliance’s informational materials and media over the next few weeks.

“Alliance Health better reflects our future in North Carolina’s public healthcare landscape,” said Alliance CEO Rob Robinson. “It speaks to the integrated whole-person care – physical, behavioral, and pharmacy – that we will be providing for the individuals we serve.”

As part of Medicaid transformation, over the next few years North Carolina will create two new kinds of health plans that will serve most Medicaid and NC Health Choice beneficiaries, including individuals currently served by our state’s LME/MCOs. These plans will be referred to as Standard Plans and Tailored Plans.
