In December 2008 the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) awarded a contract to Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) to develop and implement a Replacement Medicaid Management Information System (NCMMIS+) in support of healthcare administration for multiple DHHS agencies. NCTracks, the Replacement NCMMIS+, will be used by the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA), the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services (DMH/DD/SAS), the Division of Public Health (DPH), the Migrant Program for the Office of Rural Health and Community Care (ORHCC), and the Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR). NCTracks will process health care claims for about 70,000 enrolled DHHS providers who serve over a million N.C. citizens.
NCTracks is a multi-payer system that will facilitate provider enrollment and consolidate claims processing activities for multiple DHHS health plans. Providers enrolled in DMA, DPH, and ORHCC health plans will submit claims for covered health care services to NCTracks. Providers who are contracted by Local Management Entities (LME’s) to perform state funded MH/DD/SAS services will continue to submit their claims to the LME. NCTracks will coordinate processing among the payers to ensure the proper assignment of the payer, benefit plan, and pricing methodology for each service on a claim.
