DERRY — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is holding information sessions this month and next on the new Medicaid Care Management program.
Locally, there will be a session Tuesday, June 26, at the Derry Municipal Center, 14 Manning St., from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The meetings are for those who use Medicaid services, 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 and how the new program will work.
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.
