LME/MCO Disengagement Virtual Public Hearing
Wednesday, May 12, 2021
On November 5, 2020, the Orange County Board of Commissioners voted to begin the process of seeking State approval to change which of North Carolina’s Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organizations (LME/MCOs) has responsibility for managing behavioral health and intellectual/developmental disability (I/DD) services for Orange County residents who are insured by Medicaid or who have no health insurance. The County is seeking to transition that responsibility from Cardinal Innovations Healthcare to Alliance Health effective January 1, 2022.
As part of the County’s community outreach efforts, a Virtual Town Hall is scheduled for Wednesday, May 12, 2021, starting at 6 p.m. This Town Hall is intended to provide a forum for residents to ask questions and share feedback about the realignment process. Leadership from the County and Alliance Health will participate in this discussion.
