Release Date: May 16, 2014

Raleigh, N.C. - The DHHS Division of Medical Assistance will launch the first of two strategic planning work groups to shape N.C. Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS) to align with today's health care environment and the McCrory administration's Medicaid reform plan.

Work Group 1: Long-term Care Strategic Planning (May 22 - Nov. 2014) The first work group will focus on long-term care planning services: Community alternative programs (CAP) for adults with disabilities and children, personal care services, private duty nursing, skilled nursing facility services, and PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).

The kick-off meeting for Work Group 1 will be:
Thursday, May 22; 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Wake Tech Community College Main Campus
Student Services Building Conference Center, Rooms 212 and 213
9101 Fayetteville Rd, Raleigh NC 27603

LTSS recipients, family members and other stakeholders are welcome to participate; however, space is limited. Registration is available online at or call toll-free 1-855-761-9030.

Park in lots L or M (no parking permits required). Directions can be found at

At this meeting, long-term care work group participants will receive information necessary to effectively meet LTSS strategic planning objectives.

Work Group 2: Intermittent Services Strategic Planning (July - Nov. 2014)
The second work group will begin in July and discuss intermittent services, such as home health care, home infusion therapy and hospice. A public notice will be distributed when the kick-off meeting is scheduled.
