Employees with the state Medicaid office were called together Wednesday morning for a big staff meeting. Rumors swirled that it would be about July 1 switch-over to the new Medicaid claims billing system.
Instead, they heard from top state Department of Health and Human Services officials about how they're fixing Medicaid and how they have to control the budget. And Gov. Pat McCrory dropped for a pep talk.
Sources say he mentioned something about silos and how they should be broken.
