How VOACC Operates

As the Human Service Organization (HSO) for housing, we are the front-line social service provider that contracts with the Network Lead to deliver pilot services. We participate in the healthcare delivery system, including submitting invoices and receiving reimbursement for services delivered.

VOACC will support identification of potential pilot enrollees by connecting them to their primary health provider or case manager. All referrals will be made to us through the Unite Us/NCCares 360 platform-referrals are assessed and evaluated by their CM and/or PHP, and the PHP will then authorize services, and the referral will be made to us through the platform.

Eligibility Criteria

To qualify for services, Medicaid managed care enrollees in Standard Plans and Behavioral Health I/DD Tailored plans must reside in a pilot region and have:

  • At least one Physical/Behavioral Health Criteria: Adults having two or more qualifying chronic conditions, pregnant women (history of poor birth outcomes), children ages 0-3 (neonatal intensive care unit graduate), and children 0-20 (experiencing three or more categories of adverse childhood experiences ACES)

  • At least one social risk factor: Homeless and/or housing insecure, food insecure, transportation insecure, at risk of witnessing or experiencing interpersonal violence
