North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) this week signed the state’s Medicaid expansion bill into law, making it the 40th state to do so. North Carolina currently serves 2,401,142 Medicaid beneficiaries, with more than 1.8 million enrolled in managed care plans. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina is the market leader in managed Medicaid, serving 26.8% of beneficiaries. State officials estimate the expansion deal will bring health coverage to about 600,000 people.
