Agencies Challenge New Hampshire's Transition to Medicaid Reform

NASHUA – Clients, parents and employees of Gateways Community Services packed a showdown meeting at Harbor Homes last week on the state’s plans to impose cost efficiencies on a state Medicaid system considered to be hemorrhaging money.
Medicaid officials told the Governor’s Commission on Managed Care that more than 100,000 Medicaid subscribers on Dec. 1 smoothly switched into care management for their visits to hospitals, clinics, doctors and other medical providers.
New Hampshire is the 48th state in the nation to offer managed care under Medicaid and state budget writers are relying on the reform to save $16 million in state spending over the next 22 months
