Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) is a private, non-profit statewide community-based health care delivery and population management infrastructure comprising fourteen networks of health care providers and community-based support that provides coordinated care for Medicaid and other beneficiaries across the state. Currently, the statewide Community Care program services more than 1.3 million Medicaid enrollees, more than 50,000 uninsured and more than 100,000 dual eligibles as well as a couple of self-insured local health care plans. CCNC works closely with North Carolina’s Medicaid program to integrate prevention and public health, chronic disease management and care coordination with traditional health care activities, such as physician visits, to address the needs of the whole patient. The community based care coordination has reduced health care costs and improved the quality of care. This case study examines the history, structure and results of CCNC.
