What We Do

NC Medicaid (Division of Health Benefits) is dedicated to providing access to physical and behavioral health care and services to improve the health and well-being of over 2.1 million North Carolinians on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. NC Medicaid manages the state's Medicaid and NC Health Choice health care programs, pharmacy benefits, and behavioral health services.

In addition, NC Medicaid oversees community alternatives programs for children and disabled adults, home health care, and helping people transition from nursing homes to live in their own communities—and more. It also works closely with the North Carolina Department of Justice to identify and prosecute fraud, waste and abuse of the Medicaid program. 

We are proud of our commitment to be good stewards of taxpayer money while continuing to provide valuable health programs and services to the Medicaid population. This is an enormous responsibility, one that we are honored to share with our state and local partners. At NC Medicaid, our staff comes to work each day knowing that our contributions make a real difference in the lives of North Carolinians and the communities in which we all live and work. More
