Medicaid Care Management program in Derry soon


Derry News

---- — CONCORD — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced additional information sessions about New Hampshire’s Medicaid Care Management program. The sessions are for Medicaid clients who are eligible to participate in MCM when it begins on Dec. 1.

Enrollment materials were mailed to eligible clients in September. MCM Open Enrollment (the period of time during which clients pick their health plan) is underway in preparation of the Dec. 1 start date.

“These information sessions are an opportunity for our clients to learn about the new MCM program, how they enroll in a health plan and what they can expect when the new program begins Dec. 1,” said DHHS associate commissioner Mary Ann Cooney. “We know our clients have questions, so this is also a chance to get those questions answered in person by members of our enrollment and eligibility staff. There will also be representatives from each of the three health plans at these sessions.”

DHHS has finalized four additional information sessions in Derry, Concord, Laconia and Nashua. Seating is limited at some locations so DHHS is asking anyone planning to attend any of the sessions listed below to RSVP (unless otherwise noted) by email to Teri Jones at TMJones@dhhs.state.nh.us or by calling Teri at 271-9404.

Session 7 will be Oct. 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Derry Municipal Center, 14 Manning St.

RSVP by Oct. 25.
