Extension Process

Per NCGS § 90-414.4 (a2) the NC HIEA, in consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), has established a process to grant limited extensions of the time for providers and entities to connect to NC HealthConnex and begin submitting data as required by law.

The NC HIEA and DHHS understand that many health care providers will not be able to connect to NC HealthConnex by the mandated deadlines. The General Assembly has permitted the NC HIEA and DHHS grant extensions to health care providers if they can meet certain criteria. Any organization that is not live and is effected by the June 1, 2020, deadline will automatically receive an extension once they have a Participation Agreement on file.

Important Information

  • Participants who are in the queue to connect and are moving forward in the technical process, will automatically receive an extension and remain in compliance.

  • New participants who are mandated to connect by June 1, 2020, will automatically receive an extension if they are still in the queue to connect on their deadline.

Please note: Participants must remain responsive with the NC HealthConnex technical team and continue to move forward in the connection process. The extension is not a waiver, but simply an extended period of time to finish the connection build.
