In the middle of February, DHHS Secretary Dr. Aldona Wos granted approval for MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare to begin operations as a managed care organization under the 1915 (b) (c) Waiver on March 1, 2013. “The independent MERCER readiness reviews provided us with a detailed look at the progress that has been made in Mecklenburg County. We are pleased to continue moving toward full implementation of the managed care model for behavioral health services by July 2013, as mandated in state law,” said Dr. Wos.
