On January 25, 2023, North Carolina submitted an application to amend its Section 1115(a) demonstration titled, “North Carolina Medicaid Reform Demonstration”. With this amendment request, the state seeks to extend Medicaid eligibility to parents and caretaker relatives of children/youth in foster care who are making reasonable efforts to comply with a court-ordered plan of reunification, allowing them to maintain coverage while the child/youth is in foster care. Additionally, the state proposes to expand eligibility for the Children and Families Specialty Plan to include additional Medicaid-eligible beneficiaries. The federal comment period for this application will be open from February 7, 2023 through March 9, 2023.

Pending Application
