Carolina Complete Health (CCH) is the first provider-led Medicaid managed care health plan serving over 240,000 members in North Carolina. The health plan was established as a unique joint venture between Centene, the North Carolina Medical Society, and the North Carolina Community Health Center Association. Local providers helped design the plan and had direct input into medical policies that impact members.  We are committed to addressing social determinants of health represented through our collaborative approach to care management and unique value-added services that support education, food insecurity, prenatal care and youth development.
