You should pick a Health Plan that has the health care providers and services you want to use. Use the tips below to decide which Health Plan is right for you.

If you want to keep the doctor you have now, you must pick a Health Plan that your doctor works with.

  • STEP 1: Make a list of the doctors, clinics, hospitals and other health care providers you use now. Decide which ones you want to keep using.
  • STEP 2: To find out which Health Plan your health care provider works with, you can:
    • Use the on-line search tool at Click the "Health Plan Provider Directory" button to search providers by name, group name, or city/town; OR
    • Contact the Health Plan, and ask if your providers are in their network; OR
    • Contact your provider office, and ask which Health Plan(s) they accept; OR
    • Call the Medicaid Service Center toll free at 1-888-901-4999, and ask for help
  • STEP 3: Pick a Health Plan that works with your provider. If your provider works with more than one Health Plan, pick the Health Plan with the extra services and programs you like best.

If you do NOT have a doctor or want to change doctors, compare the Health Plans to see which one offers the services and programs you like best

There are three Health Plans to choose from: AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire, NH Healthy Families, and the Well Sense Health Plan. The three Health Plans cover the same NH Medicaid services but may have different provider networks and prior authorization requirements. Each Health Plan offers value added, or extra services and programs, which are listed on the Health Plan’s website. More information can be found by calling the Health Plan or visiting their websites.
