Granite Advantage Exemption Request Forms*:

On January 1, 2019, the New Hampshire Health Protection Program (NHHPP)/Premium Assistance Program (PAP) becomes Granite Advantage.

This transition to Granite Advantage means:

  • All current NHHPP members will receive their coverage from one of New Hampshire’s Medicaid Care Management Program (MCM) plans.
  • Community Engagement becomes a requirement for continued eligibility and aims to improve health outcomes and enhance economic independence. You do not have to complete work or other community engagement activities to apply or become eligible for Granite Advantage. For more information, see the NHEasy Granite Advantage page.
  • Granite Workforce is a work program pilot to help eligible Granite Advantage members meet the Community Engagement requirement by entering employment, education, and/or training. To be eligible, Granite Advantage members must be a parent of a dependent child or be a childless adult ages 19–24. To see if you may be eligible and for more information, see the NHEasy Granite Workforce page.
