NH DHHS to Hold Information Session in Rochester for Medicaid Recipients Transitioning into Medicaid Care Management

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

hold a public meeting on August 6 in Rochester, New Hampshire, to

help inform Medicaid recipients and providers about the transition into

Medicaid Care Management from a fee-for-service program. The information

session in Rochester will be the 5th meeting this summer hosted by DHHS, in

conjunction with New Hampshire Healthy Families and the Well Sense Health

Plan, to address the move of additional Medicaid-eligible populations into

the Care Management system for their medical services. Medicaid recipients

who could initially opt out of Medicaid Care Management will now be

required to choose one of the two health plans for their medical coverage.

The session is open to the public and is designed to answer client and

provider questions on the transition to Care Management. Topics to be

covered include Continuity of Care, the prior authorization process,

medical and pharmacy benefits, and the transportation program.

The new session will be held:
