ACCESS East | Healthy Opportunities Pilot

The Healthy Opportunities Pilot is the nation’s first comprehensive program to test and evaluate the impact of providing select evidence-based, non-medical interventions related to housing, food, transportation and interpersonal safety and toxic stress to high-needs Medicaid enrollees. The federal government has authorized up to $650 million in Medicaid funding for the Pilots over five years.

Importantly, the Pilots will allow for the establishment and evaluation of a systematic approach to integrating and financing evidence-based, non-medical services into the delivery of healthcare. If shown to be effective in improving health outcomes and reducing healthcare costs after rigorous evaluation, the NC Department of Health and Human Services will look to systematically integrate high-value Pilot services statewide through NC Medicaid Managed Care.

CHOEDC has partnered with the NCDHHS and Healthy Opportunities Pilot as a community-based organization that is contracted to deliver Pilot services. CHOEDC is dedicated to delivering high-quality Pilot services in a culturally competent manner in accordance with Pilot standards. We are also committed to developing capabilities to participate in the healthcare delivery system and build service capacity to meet the community’s needs.
