Tailored Care Management: Desk Review IRT Training


Register now for this online, self-guided course!

July 1st, 2021 marked the start of NC Medicaid Transformation with the transition to Standard Care Plans. NC DHHS has begun the process of preparing for Tailored Care Management (TCM) to begin in December of 2022. To prepare for this, DHHS has developed partnerships with North Carolina Area Health Education Center (NC AHEC) to provide practice support, technical assistance, and continuing professional development to help Tailored Care Management providers who have applied and passed the desk review in the transition to Tailored Care Management. The TCM Collaborative is designed to assist TCM candidates in developing the administrative tools to implement best practices within all treatment settings and among all providers. The Collaborative will be led by NC AHEC Practice Support to facilitate a coordinated learning experience with access to subject matter experts across the state.

This event will provide advanced medical homes and care management agencies desiring to provide Tailored Care Management services valuable information to start the application process to pass the desk review.
