Your voice is needed for children’s health care in NC!

Want to join a group of parents and caregivers speaking up for kids’ health care?

NC Child is excited to announce the creation of a Parent Advisory Council (PAC). The PAC’s goal is to make sure that Medicaid and NC Health Choice provides the health care your children deserve.

We are looking for 5 to 8 parents and/ or caregivers to participate in the PAC, whose children are covered by Medicaid or NC Health Choice. NC Child will cover all costs associated with PAC members participation in meetings including meals, travel, and childcare.

Complete this short survey and learn more about the PAC.

Why is the PAC important?

  • Medicaid and NC Health Choice provides health coverage for over 1 million children in North Carolina.
  • Starting in the fall of 2019, North Carolina’s Medicaid and NC Health Choice will undergo big changes that may affect how your child(ren) and families receive health care.
  • Your participation will help NC Child and its partners, state lawmakers, and administrators understand what works best for children and families with Medicaid and NC Health Choice.
  • Joining the PAC means learning about health care advocacy and being a voice for children in North Carolina.

How do I join the PAC?
