You should have already received a letter and additional information from North Carolina Medicaid’s Enrollment Broker. This letter gives you information on the changes and asks you to choose a Medicaid insurance health plan and primary care physician (PCP) or one will be chosen for you.
Our practice is serving the following Medicaid insurance health plans:
WellCare of NC, Inc.

You can find additional information and enroll at https://ncmedicaidplans.gov/enroll. After choosing a Medicaid insurance health plan, you will then choose a primary care practice (PCP). If you want to continue to be seen by Blue Ridge Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine, Inc., make sure to select us or one of our providers as your PCP.
Remember if you do not choose a Medicaid insurance health plan or a PCP by May 15, 2021, you will be auto assigned to a plan and practice that may not be us.
If your child sees any specialists you should also contact those offices to see which Medicaid health plans they will be accepting.
