Starting April 1, 2023, NC Health Choice beneficiaries will automatically be transferred to the Medicaid program. Beneficiaries do not have to take any action on their own for the change to take effect.

What are the benefits of this change?

With NC Medicaid beneficiaries will:

  • Have more health care providers to choose from.
  • Be eligible for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT), a benefit designed to discover and treat health conditions before they become serious.
  • No longer have enrollment fees or copays.
  • Have pregnancy and 12-month postpartum coverage.
  • Be eligible for non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for Medicaid-covered services.

If you have questions, call AmeriHealth Caritas North Carolina Member Services at 1-855-375-8811 (TTY 1-866-209-6421), 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
