CONCORD, N.H. -  New Hampshire officials are working to implement New Hampshire's health care expansion plan, the New Hampshire Health Protection Program, by July 1.

A press release says the implementation team is working with providers, managed care organizations, and vendors to develop appropriate coverage for New Hampshire residents. This includes, substance use disorder benefit, supported rates, and appropriate infrastructure to meet objectives under the law.

“Last month, we took a historic step forward for the health and financial well-being of New Hampshire families, businesses and communities by passing our bipartisan plan to expand health care access to 50,000 hard-working Granite Staters,” Governor Hassan said. “To meet the benchmarks and aggressive timelines put forward in our fiscally responsible, uniquely New Hampshire solution, our implementation team at the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is moving quickly toward a goal of July 1 to begin coverage under the New Hampshire Health Protection Program.”

New Hampshire citizens who are interested in learning more about the New Hampshire Protection Program, can visit www.dhhs.nh.gov or call DHHS’ Client Services hotline at 1-800-852-3345 ext. 9700.
