RALEIGH — As the state works to comply with federal Medicaid mandates, people getting and giving personal care services in North Carolina are fearful of what changes are to come. Currently, the state has a deadline of April 30 to meet requirements, which will change the Medicaid reimbursement for adult home care facilities.

State lawmakers expressed concern Tuesday that there is not a plan in place as to how to handle that change when it comes while home care workers said they expect dire outcomes.

"I can tell you how it will affect. There will be nobody in facility to change diapers. There will be nobody in facility to give medications. There will be nobody in facilities to supervise folks. That’s how it will affect," said Lou Wilson.

The state plans to petition the federal government to ask for a delay in these changes.
