Do You See State-Insured Patients? You Must Take Action with NC HealthConnex By June 1 

If you treat patients insured by the State Health Plan, Medicaid, and/or NC Health Choice, you must take action to connect to the NC Health Information Exchange (HIE), called NC HealthConnex, by June 1, 2021.

NCPA fought hard to win this extension for psychiatrists (through HB70), so this is the final deadline. NCPA lobbyists are currently fighting bills that would impose civil financial penalties for not being connected to the HIE.

The steps to connect involve having an Electronic Health Record system and signing a participation agreement saying that you intend to connect your EHR to NC HealthConnex.

Are you unsure whether you are required to connect? Do you need help finding an EHR vendor for your practice? Are you feeling totally lost about what steps to take?? NCPA needs to hear from you so that we can help you!
