Community Care of the Sandhills
Community Care of the Sandhills (CCS) is one of 14 networks participating in the Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) program. CCS is a local non-profit network serving more than 74,000 North Carolina Medicaid enrollees in Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Richmond, and Scotland counties. The network is comprised of 250 providers in 101 Primary Care practice sites, 16 Pregnancy Medical Home sites, and includes the counties' seven hospitals, health departments, and departments of social service.
Community Care of the Sandhills is working with its partners in a number of initiatives recognized nationally as future components of healthcare, not only for the Medicaid population but Medicare and private insurers as well. The Patient Centered Medical Home initiative is designed to restructure medical practices allowing physicians to maximize their time and training to meet a growing volume of patients. Teaming with state and federal agencies, CCS is working to implement electronic medical records in its practices and to promote the development of a regional health information exchange allowing patient information to follow the patient throughout the network. Through its web-based Provider Portal, physicians can access basic information on any NC Medicaid patient minimizing duplication of services. Through its Pregnancy Medical Home and Coordinated Care for Children programs, CCS is assisting obstetricians in high risk pregnancies and pediatricians for children with special needs.
Please be aware that North Carolina Medicaid is combining its billing processes under a new system called NCTracks. The system will "go live" July 1, 2013. Providers NOT registered with NCTracks will not be paid for submitted claims.
The system will be used by the:
- Division of Medical Assistance
- Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services
- Division of Public Health
- The Migrant Program for the Office of Rural Health and Community Care
- Division of Health Service Regulation
