New Hampshire governor creates new commission on managed care for Medicaid for help in moves to new health care model for poor
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan has created a new commission on managed care for Medicaid to advise her as New Hampshire moves to the health care model for its poor.
Hassan issued an executive order Wednesday creating the Governor's Commission on Medicaid Care Management. The commission will bring together people with a range of expertise in health care to review and advise the state on implementing the system.
Hassan said implementing a managed care system for New Hampshire's existing Medicaid population is critical to expanding Medicaid to cover the uninsured under the federal health care law.
Mary Vallier-Kaplan, former vice president of the New Hampshire Endowment for Health, will chair the commission. Donald Shumway, president and chief executive officer of Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center, will be vice chairman.
