DAVIE COUNTY, NC – The Davie County Board of County Commissioners chose to pursue a relationship with Partners Behavioral Health Management to manage our citizens’ behavioral health services funded by federal, state and county dollars, including Medicaid.
Partners is a Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO), a governmental entity which manages the county’s mental health, intellectual/developmental disability and substance use services. Currently, our behavioral health services are managed by Cardinal Innovations Healthcare. However, Partners’ intentional focus on community interaction and high-engagement with stakeholders and other attributes more closely align with Davie County’s vision and strategic planning. Davie County believes this realignment will better serve the community and its needs.
A Disengagement Plan was approved unanimously by the Davie County Board of Commissioners on August 2, 2021. With this action, the Davie County Board of Commissioners affirmed its commitment to disengage from Cardinal Innovations Healthcare and realign with Partners Health Management, consistent with the applicable statutes and regulations (NCGS § 122C-115(a3); 10A NCAC 26C.0701 - 10A NCAC 26C.0703).
The Disengagement Plan and associated resolution are online at https://www.daviecountync.gov/1098/LMEMCO-Disengagement-Plan and will be available online for sixty (60) days. Public comment is welcome and encouraged through an online submittal form and/or by mail addressed to:
Davie County Manager
ATTN: LME/MCO Realignment
123 South Main Street
Mocksville, NC 27028
Following this public comment period, the County will post all responses for an additional 30 days. Davie County will take into consideration feedback received, will review all written plans, and will submit a written request to disengage to the Secretary of the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) for approval.
