Providers Council Executive, Board, and Committee leadership analyzes the potential impact of proposed system changes on provider members and the people who we support.  The North Carolina Providers Council contracts with The Policy Group for lobbying activities at the General Assembly.  One means of effectively identifying and articulating policy priorities for The Policy Group is to convene member committees throughout the year.  The policy-related committees – Regulatory and Business Practices, Provider Network Council, Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders, and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities – meet monthly or bi-monthly and are chaired by NC Providers Council Board members.   Committee members represent diverse provider agencies, geographic regions, and LME/MCO catchment areas across the State.  They therefore have the valuable insight to raise key issues for potential action that committee Chairs can forward to the full Board for consideration.  You can see why membership in the NC Providers Council and Committee participation is essential!

All committee meetings are held via videoconference with a dial-in option.  The Standing Committees are:

  • IDD Committee (meetings include a guest NC Medicaid representative)
    • Meets bi-monthly
    • Co-Chaired by 2019 Board Secretary Devon Cornett of Developmental Disabilities Resources and Board Treasurer Christopher White of Life Span Services
  • MH / SUD Committee (meetings may include a guest NC Medicaid or Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services, DHHS representative)
