Medicaid Care Management (MCM)

What is the Medicaid Care Management (MCM) program?

Most New Hampshire Medicaid recipients receive their services in managed care. These recipients are in a program known as Medicaid Care Management (MCM).

The MCM program uses two (2) Health Plans. Each Health Plan has its own network of doctors, nurses and other providers who work together to give you the care you need.

Both Health Plans cover the same basic services and programs as regular Medicaid. Each Health Plan may also offer extra services not available under the regular Medicaid program.

The added services you get will depend on the Health Plan you pick. These extras may include wellness and prevention programs that help you stay healthy and meet your health goals.

Each Health Plan must cover all the same services as regular Medicaid. However, NH Medicaid uses a Care Management program for your services. You may get extra services and programs not offered by regular Medicaid. For example, if you have a chronic health need, your Health Plan may offer a care manager who will help you manage your illness.

Some of your services will stay under regular Medicaid. These include children's dental care, nursing home, and home and community based care (HCBC) waiver services.

Don't throw away your Medicaid Card. You still need it. Show both your NH Medicaid Card and your MCM Health Plan card to your doctor or pharmacist at each visit.
