Second Delay For New Hampshire's Medicaid Managed Care Program

Transferring New Hampshire's Medicaid program to so-called managed care is a huge, sprawling puzzle, and part of the program is being delayed.

HHS is delaying part of New Hampshire’s Medicaid Managed Care program.

Transferring New Hampshire’s Medicaid program to so-called managed care is a huge, sprawling puzzle. The idea is for private insurance companies to take over the state program that provides health insurance for low-income residents. And the trickiest part will be transferring the care of the sickest residents—people with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.

The state HHS now says that last piece will transition in September of 2015.
