Alliance was selected by the NC Department of Health and Human Services to operate a pilot Waiver for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in Durham, Wake, Cumberland and Johnston counties.

The TBI Waiver provides an array of home and community based services, through a three-year Medicaid waiver pilot, in Alliance’s four-county region. The waiver is designed to provide an alternative to nursing facility care or specialty rehabilitation hospital care for eligible individuals with a traumatic brain injury.

– Adults with cognitive, behavioral and or physical support needs. 

– Individuals who have sustained a diagnosed TBI on or after their 22nd birthday. 

– Adults who meet specialty rehabilitation hospital or skilled nursing level of care and who meet financial eligibility requirements may be eligible to participate in this Medicaid waiver.

Alliance Health is the managed care organization for publicly-funded behavioral healthcare services for the people of Durham, Wake, Cumberland and Johnston counties.
