Managed Care Consultation and Technical Assistance

Through the Systems Integration Management Institute, NCFC provides training, consultation, and technical support services to prepare and assist agencies that are transitioning to a system of care that incorporates managed care practices. NCFC has the capacity to train agency leadership and staff in the basic principles, trends, and issues of operating a child welfare program in a changing environment. NCFC provides practical support while an agency transitions to a risk-based system of care and ensures contractual agreements between public and private agencies are well-designed and supported. NCFC consultation supports an agency's preparations and ensures the necessary elements are in place to implement and successfully manage child welfare programs in a managed care environment.

Agencies that are not operating in risk-based managed care systems can also benefit from incorporating the tools and individual business practices NCFC offers to improve efficiency. NCFC consultants ensure organizations are adequately prepared to compete and perform in an ever-changing business arena.

Managed care consultation and technical assistance areas include:
  • operating as or working with an administrative service organization (ASO),
  • rate setting,
  • establishing risk corridors,
  • performance-based contracting,
  • management information systems,
  • strategic alliances, and
  • lead agency, subcontracting, and public agency models.


For more information about the consultation services offered by NCFC, contact the Intake and Project Development Manager at 978/365-5068 or e-mail
