Medicaid Expansion will go-live on December 1, 2023

More than 600,000 people will gain access to quality care.

Medicaid expansion will go-live on Dec. 1, 2023. This is a game changer for the more than 600,000 people gaining access to quality care and is the most significant investment in the health of our state in decades. Medicaid expansion represents billions of dollars of investment each year that helps keep doors open to clinics, facilities and providers in rural communities – all of whom help keep people well. Thank you to the many partners that have helped make this life-saving investment a reality.  

The team at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has been working closely with implementation partners since the initial passage of Medicaid expansion in March. With a launch date now certain, NCDHHS will ramp up communications to beneficiaries and partners along with other launch activities. Thank you to the many collaborators who have been working side-by-side with the Department on expansion. NCDHHS appreciates the leadership of Gov. Cooper and the North Carolina General Assembly for securing the passage of Medicaid expansion.
