In 2013 the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) funded the "Medical and Health Homes for People with Intellectual and Other Developmental Disabilities: Coordination, Collaboration and Community" to develop recommendations for the management and delivery of primary health care services and long-term services and supports.

In 2016 the NCCDD funded "From Planning to Action: Integrated, Collaborative Care for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities" to evaluate two demonstration pilots designed to improve the capacity of primary and community healthcare providers to care for children and adults with I/DD through consultative access to medical and clinical professionals with I/DD expertise.

In 2017 the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provided funds to enhance the work of the demonstration pilots and inform Medicaid redesign and strategic planning, with an emphasis on children with complex needs.
