DATE ISSUED: July 14, 2014

FROM:  The NH State Family Support Council

SUBJECT:  Invitation to Stakeholders and others to Provide Input Concerning Integration of Long Term Services and Supports [commonly referred to as “Step 2” services] into New Hampshire’s Medicaid Care Management [MCM] program.


The purpose of this announcement is to invite families, individuals and other NH citizens to attend a public forum, hosted by the NH State Family Support Council, which will provide information about the NH Department of Health and Human Services’ plan to integrate Long Term Services and Supports into NH’s Medicaid Care Management program and provide an opportunity for you to give input into the planning process.


Long Term Services and Supports, including those provided through the Developmental Disabilities [DD], Acquired Brain Disorders [ABD] In Home Supports [I.H.S.] Home and Community Based Services waivers are being integrated into the Medicaid Care Management [MCM] program.


Although a start date has yet to be determined for the integration of DD, ABD and I.H.S. waiver services and supports into the Medicaid Care Management program, planning is underway and your input is needed.


On Monday August 4, 2014, the NH State Family Support Council is hosting a Stakeholder Input Session from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.  This meeting is being held at New Hampshire Hospital, 36 Clinton Street Concord, NH 03301, in conference rooms A-C.


To register to attend in person, at New Hampshire Hospital, please contact Debra Gibbs at or by calling 271-5143 no later than August 1, 2014.  Registration is not required, but is appreciated as light refreshments will be served at New Hampshire Hospital.


It may also be possible for you to participate via videoconference at your regional Area Agency.  To arrange for this, please contact your Area Agency Family Support Coordinator. 

The Department of Health and Human Services relies on the experience of individuals, families and others to provide input into the planning process.   Please plan to join us at this forum or at one of the many forums being planned across the state from July 2014 through November 2014
