WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A medical provider in Wilmington is one of seven businesses to join a class-action complaint over the NCTracks system.

Abron's Family Practice and Urgent Care is the latest medical provider to cite concerns over the state's online system for handling Medicaid claims and reimbursement.

Camden Webb, of Williams Mullen's Raleigh office, said Thursday that the lawsuit calls for a change to the current system and compensation for lost business. He said one of his clients had to stop accepting new Medicaid patients this month, so the general public should be concerned about this case.

"These are the most needy folks in our state that need that affordable care, who are eligible for Medicaid but whose doctor is no longer going to take Medicaid which is a thing that should concern us all," said Webb.

Defendants named in the lawsuit include the following:

  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Computer Sciences Corporation, the company that designed and operates NCTracks
  • Maximus Consulting Services, the NCTracks vendor responsible for validation of the software
  • SLI Global Solutions, the vendor responsible for testing NCTracks
