The Healthy Opportunities Pilot

Am I

Your health may be impacted by more than you realize. Being – and staying – healthy is about more than a visit to the doctor.

Do you have a secure place to live?

Do you have access to healthy food?

Do you have reliable transportation?

Is your home life or parenting stressful?

If you are a NC Medicaid Managed Care recipient, you may qualify for free services through the Healthy Opportunities Pilot (HOP) program.*
