Onboarding/Annual Trainings

NC DHHS established provider training criteria for the Tailored Plan, which must be made available for Tailored Plan Providers. Recognizing the importance of reducing the administrative burden, the following reciprocity agreement has been developed between Carolina Complete Health and our Tailored Plan partners; Trillium Health Resources and Partners Behavioral Health Management.

This training reciprocity agreement is inclusive of the following identified trainings enveloped within CCH New Provider Orientation:

  • Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) 
  • Into the Mouths of Babes (IMB)
  • Population Health (titles vary)
  • Infection Prevention and Control
  • Cultural Competency

Providing a cohesive approach to meet the NC DHHS criteria and ensure Providers are not burdened by duplicative trainings, this agreement will allow Providers to receive completion credit for the above trainings with either of Carolina Complete Health’s Tailored Plan partners.

The Prepaid Health Plans, in collaboration with NC AHEC, streamlined the Cultural Competency training requirement for Providers. As a result, please view the following training that was created by the Department of Health and Human Services and endorsed by each PHP. You only need to view it once to meet the training requirement for each plan you are contracted with. Once complete, please kindly attest to your training by filling out this brief survey

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health (OMH) offers guides, toolkits, and additional trainings through their website. 

NC AHEC is developing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion curriculum 

Medicaid offers its covered children and youth under age 21 a comprehensive benefit for preventive health and medical treatment. Carolina Complete Health adheres to and offers or arranges for the full scope of preventive and treatment services available within the federal EPSDT benefit. Preventive (wellness) services are offered without copays or other charges, per the periodic schedule established by the state of North Carolina. Early Periodic Screening services include physical exams, up to date health histories, developmental, behavioral and risk screens, vision, hearing and dental health screens and all vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

PHPs, in collaboration with the State and each of the 8 tribes in North Carolina, developed a streamlined Provider Tribal Training. This is intended to provide information and to assist providers with cultural awareness and sensitivity when serving Native American tribal members. This training represents an updated map of tribal coverage in NC, as well as feedback from the aforementioned groups. 

Training provided by Trillium Health Resources, in partnership with Carolina Complete Health.
