“New Hampshire Granite Advantage Health Care Program 1115 Demonstration”

New Hampshire

~~“In this extension package, changes have been made to the STCs and related authorities to align with New Hampshire State Legislature Senate Bill 313, requiring the state to request waivers under section 1115 needed to implement the Granite Advantage Health Care Program, which will serve beneficiaries through the state’s Medicaid managed care delivery system rather than through the New Hampshire Health Protection Program (NHHPP) Premium Assistance program, which assisted beneficiaries in covering premiums to purchase qualified health plan coverage through the Health Insurance Exchange.  Separately, on September 13, 2018, CMS approved New Hampshire’s state plan amendment to effectuate mandatory enrollment of the new adult group population into Medicaid managed care.  By transitioning all beneficiaries into a single Medicaid managed care delivery system, the state intends to streamline administration of beneficiary services and reduce administrative costs.  Consistent with the STCs for this extension, the state must ensure the availability of adequate resources for implementation and monitoring of the demonstration.  Approval of this demonstration extension does not imply approval of any particular state financing approach and the state must comply with all general financial requirements under Title XIX.”
