Sep 23, 2013

The head of North Carolina's Medicaid program is resigning. Carol Steckel had been one of the people pushing a proposed overhaul of the state's Medicaid program. Now she's leaving after just eight months on the job.


Governor Pat McCrory outlined a plan to significantly change North Carolina's Medicaid program last week. A key person responsible for filling in the details is Carol Steckel. She's the director of the state's Medicaid program, and she spoke to WFAE's Michael Tomsic about the reasons for the overhaul and how it's designed to work.
