North Carolina’s “Healthy Opportunities Pilots” were among the first 1115 demonstrations granting broad state authority to leverage Medicaid funding to address drivers of health—the conditions in which people live, work and learn that determine up to 80% of health outcomes. In a new webinar, Manatt Health will host a conversation with leadership and key partners in North Carolina’s Healthy Opportunities Pilots. The session will share on-the-ground experiences, lessons learned and best practices from this far-reaching program to test and evaluate the impact of providing Medicaid enrollees with evidence-based, nonmedical interventions related to food, housing, transportation, interpersonal safety and toxic stress. Click here to register free—and gain new insights into North Carolina’s first year of delivering social drivers of health (SDOH )support to its Medicaid enrollees. Topics that will be covered include:
- An overview of key features of North Carolina’s Healthy Opportunities Pilots
- A look at how diverse stakeholders across the health and human services continuum are working together to deliver nonmedical services to Medicaid beneficiaries
- Lessons learned, including key successes and barriers, from the Healthy Opportunities Pilot design and implementation
