A new Medicaid system is emerging in North Carolina in which accountable care organizations will aim to improve both the quality and value of health care. We explore how local health departments can apply their expertise in population health to help achieve these goals.

Clinical performance metrics are the foundation of the design and ultimate performance of North Carolina's Medicaid reform plan. This commentary describes the general approach of the state's Department of Health and Human Services in setting metrics, including goals, assumptions, and starting principles.

This commentary argues against Medicaid expansion in North Carolina for 5 reasons: Expansion will reduce access to care for highly vulnerable individuals who are already enrolled in Medicaid; it is unlikely to save lives; it is unaffordable in the long run; its current financing structure encourages fiscal irresponsibility; and it will eliminate more jobs than it creates.

North Carolina's refusal to expand its Medicaid program has left many thousands of North Carolinians without health insurance and has imposed unnecessary costs on all of the state's residents through higher premiums in the state's health insurance marketplace. Expanding Medicaid is the most efficient way to extend coverage to the state's uninsured population, and expansion would bring a substantial amount of new federal money into the state. This money can serve as a catalyst for ambitious reforms to the Medicaid program that can lower costs, improve quality of care, and increase value for patients and taxpayers alike...

Medicaid consumers face some uncertainty concerning the proposed Medicaid reform plan. Concerns focus on continuity and quality of care and support for consumer protections and rights. Despite updated Medicaid managed care rules that include consumer protections, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services must implement further safeguards to address consumer concerns.

North Carolina has made progress toward improving the health of its citizens, yet much more needs to be done. Now is the right time for the state to transform its Medicaid and North Carolina Health Choice programs into a managed care delivery system that gives providers more flexibility to deliver care that focuses on the whole person and benefits people's lives beyond the medical setting. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is focused on maximizing opportunities and managing challenges, and the department understands that collaboration of health care professionals and other stakeholders is essential to achieve the right results for North Carolinians...

North Carolina's Medicaid reform plan legislation will continue the state's behavioral health care system of local management entities and managed care organizations for 4 years after the implementation of the 1115 waiver. Policymakers have options, including staying the course, but they must be deliberate and thoughtful in their decisions.

Health care coverage has changed dramatically over the past few decades, with more focus on integrated health systems, innovative treatments, and technology. These changes have resulted in cost savings and improved health for many. However, we continue to face challenges in improving outcomes for those with the greatest need.

To move the dial and drive the factors that impact 70% of health outcomes, we need a health and social services system that has the capacity and flexibility to address social determinants, and we need to better engage individuals in taking ownership of the factors they can control. The foundational elements that will then have the greatest impact on improving North Carolina's population health-when integrated-are Medicaid policy and metrics, social determinants, whole-person-centered models of care, and workforce development...

PURPOSE: Electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) use continues to rise among adolescents, but little is known regarding their risk perceptions of e-cigarette use.

METHODS: Data were derived from the 2015 North Carolina Youth Risk Behavior Survey, which was administered to 503 middle school and 444 high school students in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro public school district...
