NH DHHS Announces Medicaid Care Management Sessions for Clients

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services

(DHHS) is announcing information sessions about NH’s Medicaid Care

Management (MCM) program. The sessions are for Medicaid clients who are

eligible to participate in MCM when it begins on December 1st. Enrollment

materials were mailed to eligible clients earlier this month. MCM Open

Enrollment (the period of time during which clients pick their health plan)

is now underway in preparation of the December 1 start date.

“We are reaching out to our Medicaid clients,” said DHHS Associate

Commissioner Mary Ann Cooney, “and offering these information sessions so

that our clients can come and learn about MCM, how to enroll in a Health

Plan, and what they can expect beginning December 1. This is an

opportunity for our Medicaid clients to get their questions answered by

members of our own enrollment and eligibility staff, and there will also be

representatives from each of the 3 Health Plans at these meetings.”

There will be four information sessions held during October. Seating is

limited so DHHS is asking anyone planning to attend to RSVP by email to

Teri Jones at TMJones@dhhs.state.nh.us or by calling Teri at 603-271-9404.

Please indicate any needs such as ASL, Large Print or alternative formats
