NCPA CONDEMNS BIGOTRY AND VIOLENT PROTEST

The recent events in Charlottesville have occurred in the context of increasing polarization in political views throughout the country that is accompanied by anger and resentment. It also comes at a time when several minority groups are feeling increasingly threatened by the actions of government and nongovernmental parties. These factors have caused an increase in stress and anxiety among the citizens of our country, including North Carolina. NCPA condemns the racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, and anti-gay attitudes shown by many demonstrators in Charlottesville this past weekend. NCPA opposes discriminatory violence against others and mourns the loss of life that resulted from militant, organized bigotry. We are concerned about the increase in adverse psychological impact on both the targets and perpetrators of prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination. Click here to read the full NCPA statement.

DHHS ISSUES PROPOSED MEDICAID PLAN

On August 8, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a detailed, proposed program design for Medicaid managed care in North Carolina. This proposed design will provide over 1.6 million residents with an innovative, whole-person-centered, well-coordinated system of care. The proposed design, available at ncdhhs.gov/nc-medicaid-transformation, gives providers, plans and other stakeholders the opportunity to share feedback before the Department submits a revised waiver to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in the fall. Comments are due by September 8. NCPA’s committees and boards will be reviewing the proposed plan and making comments.
