The NC Department of Health and Human Services has developed and implemented the NC Electronic Pre-Assessment Screening Service tool (ePASS) as an online application tool that is a portal of NC FAST that you may use to apply for services.

ePASS is a secure, Internet-based solution that provides a quick and easy way for clients and customers to see if they are eligible for services.

Simply create an online account at the NC ePASS website to get started! All you will need is an email account and an NCID. The ePASS website has all the instructions you need to get started.


Currently, you can use NC ePASS to screen for your potential eligibility and to apply for the following programs:
  • Medicaid
  • Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamps)

When you have completed your application, you can submit the application to us directly online! No more printing and faxing and mailing!
