MCM Step 2 - Long Term Services and Supports

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is in the process of transitioning the state's Medicaid delivery system from the current fee-for-service model to the Medicaid Care Management Program.

Step 2 of the transition includes Mandatory Enrollment for medical care with one of the state's Managed Care Organizations (Well Sense Health Plan or NH Healthy Families) for the following Medicaid recipients: Children in Foster Care, Medicare Dual Eligibles (people who have both Medicare and Medicaid), Home Care for Children with Severe Disabilities (aka Katie Beckett Medicaid), Children with special health care needs enrolled in Special Medical Services/Partners in Health and Children with Supplemental Security Income.

Step 2 also includes integration of Long Term Supports and Services (LTSS) such as Choices for Independence Waiver Services and Nursing Facility Services into the Medicaid Care Management program.

DHHS conducted a formal stakeholder engagement process to obtain input on best practices for integration of Step 2 populations and services into the Medicaid Care Management program. Meetings were held across the state from July 2014 - November 2014.

Medicaid Care Management Step 2:

Notice is hereby given that the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is presenting the Medicaid Care Management Step 2 Final Draft Design Considerations. This presentation will describe how New Hampshire will provide Choices for Independence Waiver services through contracted Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), and how New Hampshire will implement mandating enrollment into the Medicaid Care Management program for all non-exempt Medicaid recipients.
