NH DHHS - Additional Medicaid Program Information Meeting Scheduled in the North Country

Concord, NH - The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is

announcing an additional information session on the new Medicaid Care

Management program to be held in Berlin at the Androscoggin Valley Hospital

on July 12th. This session is in addition to 11 other sessions being held

throughout June and July around the State.

The meetings are for those who use Medicaid services as well as family

members and caregivers and for human service agency case managers or

service coordinators who work with them. Others are welcome to attend if

they are interested.

Information covered will be on the first step of the new Medicaid Care

Management program scheduled to launch later this year. The first step

encompasses those Medicaid services that address medical needs, such as

doctor visits, inpatient and outpatient hospital visits, prescriptions,

mental health services, home health services, speech therapy and audiology

services. Enrollment for the new program is projected to begin in October

and services in December.

Meeting topics will include basic information about:

§ When the new program will start

§ What people will have to do when signing up for the program

§ How people can pick a Care Management health plan

§ How the new program will work

All of the sessions will cover the same information, so people need to

attend only one.

This is an information meeting only. It is not for signing people up for

the new Care Management program. That will happen later in the year.

Registration is not required, but is appreciated. To register go to HTU
