Concord, NH – To continue to provide health insurance coverage for the Medicaid Expansion population while being consistent with current legislation considered by the NH Legislature, the NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is seeking to amend and extend its current Medicaid expansion waiver. If the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approve the waiver request, Medicaid Expansion will transition from the Premium Assistance Program to Medicaid Managed Care through the Granite Advantage Health Care Program. Work and community engagement requirements will be included to empower people to better their lives.

Prior to submitting the waiver request to CMS to establish the Granite Advantage Health Care Program, DHHS is seeking comment from the public. The 30 day public comment period begins on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 and lasts through Thursday, June 7, 2018. All comments must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on June 7.

DHHS will also host two public hearings during the public comment period:

  • Monday, May 14, 2018
    2:00-4:30 pm
    29 Hazen Drive
    Concord, NH
  • Thursday, May 24, 2018
