Behavioral Health I/DD Tailored Plans

North Carolina will launch specialized managed care plans, called BH I/DD Tailored Plans, starting in 2021. These plans are designed for those with significant behavioral health (BH) needs and intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DDs). BH I/DD Tailored Plans will also serve other special populations, including Innovations and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) waiver enrollees and waitlist members.

Upcoming Meetings

Meetings are open to the public. 

DHHS will hold a stakeholder webinar to provide the specifics of Tailored Plan eligibility criteria, enrollment processes, and transitions between Standard Plans and Tailored Plans. On March 18, 2019 DHHS released a final policy guidance paper on these key concepts. The full paper can be found at
