Warren County is now included in the group of counties that have made a decision to move to a new Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO). These organizations are responsible for providing behavioral healthcare services in North Carolina. Warren County is currently served in the Cardinal Innovations Healthcare catchment area, which extends from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, to the Virginia border at Warren County.
Effective August 3rd, Warren County will provide notice to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Cohen of the County’s intent to disengage from the Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization, Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, and realign with Eastpointe.
The Warren County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution and disengagement plan and will be seeking stakeholder and citizen feedback.
For more information, contact the County Manager, Vincent Jones, at the Warren County Manager’s Office at 252-257-3115. Public comments can be sent to the County Attorney, Hassan Kingsberry, at firstname.lastname@example.org..
Comments are encouraged from providers, consumers, advocates, self-advocates, and the State and Local Consumer and Family Advisory Committees.
