PLS is seeking one to two full-time, N.C. licensed attorneys to handle NC Medicaid education/outreach, legal advocacy, and strategic information sharing to protect NC Medicaid beneficiaries during the transition to Medicaid Managed Care. There are an approximately 175,000 people enrolled in Medicaid in Western North Carolina at any given time. Though it is hard to predict the demand, we expect to help hundreds of Medicaid enrollees in the 18 westernmost mountain counties in the first year. Medicaid experience and legal aid experience preferred. Experience in Medicaid managed care in another state is ideal. Passion for promoting justice and overcoming barriers facing low-income people, being a creative and zealous attorney and a team-player, and a demonstrated commitment to achieving lasting results for clients and low-income communities are all important. By ensuring that the lowest-income people in Western North Carolina have access to full Medicaid services, we will raise up opportunities for positive health outcomes at the individual and community levels.
