The Arc of North Carolina Announces it is a Care Management Agency

We are proud to announce The Arc of North Carolina has been certified as a Care Management Agency. Our organization has undergone a rigorous development and certification process to provide care management to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) will launch Tailored Plans on December 1st. People receiving services from their Tailored Plan and who are funded by Medicaid or state funds will be eligible for Tailored Care Management. This includes people with IDD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), mental illness, and substance use disorder who have moderate to high levels of need for supports and services. There are over 70,000 people in NC with IDD and TBI who will be eligible for Tailored Care Management.

“As a leading provider of supports and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we look forward to providing whole-person care,” said John Nash, Executive Director, The Arc of North Carolina.

On December 1st, our organization will begin providing Care Management to individuals with IDD and TBI who choose us to provide their care management for them. This means that a care manager will be assigned to an individual to help coordinate one’s medical and behavioral health needs and community-based services. Care Management is designed for whole-person, integrated care. People will have a single designated Care Manager supported by a multidisciplinary care team to provide whole-person care management that addresses all of a person’s physical and mental health needs. Our goal in providing care management will be to help people with IDD  improve their health and overall quality of life as much as possible.

The Arc of North Carolina is committed to securing for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), the opportunity to choose and realize their goals of where and how they learn, live, work, and play. As an organization with over 65 years of statewide service, The Arc of NC is continuously engaged in advocacy work, service programs, and supports that serve people with IDD and their families.
