Join AmeriHealth Caritas Next Today

Beginning January 1, 2022, AmeriHealth Caritas Next will be available on the North Carolina Health Insurance Marketplace for residents of selected North Carolina counties. Participating in the Health Insurance Marketplace aligns with our vision to empower those in need across their full life journey, by providing a health insurance option for those who otherwise would have no access to health insurance coverage. We aim to continue to be there for members as they transition out of Medicaid and are able to gain coverage through the North Carolina Health Insurance Marketplace.

We are currently developing a network of hospital, physical, ancillary, and behavioral health care providers, and we want to partner with dedicated providers like you.
