Medicaid Managed Care Webinar Series for Providers
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Health Benefits and NC AHEC are offering two monthly evening webinar series to help prepare providers, practice managers, and quality managers for Medicaid Managed Care going live on July 1, 2021.
Hosted by Shannon Dowler, MD, chief medical officer of the NC Division of Health Benefits, these two series will feature changing subtopics on Medicaid Managed Care on the first Thursday of each month and Clinical Quality on the third Thursday of each month through June 2021.
Advanced Medical Home Webinar Series
Beginning in December 2020, a new Medicaid Managed Care webinar series on the Advanced Medical Home (AMH) program will provide Medicaid primary care practice staff and clinicians with more information on North Carolina’s AMH model and how to function at the highest AMH Tier possible when Medicaid Managed Care goes live in July 2021.
The series is designed to support practice managers, quality improvement professionals, care coordinators, and others within your practice who are responsible for meeting the NC Medicaid AMH Tier 2 or 3 requirements. This series will occur the second Thursday of each month beginning in December 2020 and continue through May 2021.
The NC AHEC Primary Care Team e-Learning Series provides online courses designed to enhance the role of medical assistants and other members of the care team within primary care practices. Information is innovative, affordable, and on-demand. Watch the video above for more information about this important practice support course.

Faculty for these courses are from various disciplines and are currently engaged in the care of individuals dealing with opioid addiction. These include behavioral health specialists, peer support specialists, community navigators, primary care physicians, and emergency medical services.
