Medicaid expansion officially kicked off in North Carolina on Dec. 1, 2023, following a decade-long grassroots advocacy campaign led by statewide nonpartisan coalition Care4Carolina. With expansion, North Carolinians between the ages of 19 and 64 with household incomes of 138 percent of the federal poverty level may qualify. This means single adults making less than $20,120 a year or families of four making less than $41,400 a year could be eligible to receive coverage that includes primary care, hospital services, prescriptions, dental and behavioral health.
