One Medicaid managed-care company leaving the state

CONCORD — Meridian Health Plan, one of the three managed-care companies administering the state Medicaid program, will withdraw June 30.

Meridian, based in Detroit, Mich., said it wants to focus on its core businesses in the Midwest.

With the NH Health Protection Program beginning this year, Meridian and the Department of Health and Human Services agreed a summer withdrawal would minimize disruption to the program and newly eligible patients.
“We will work quickly with the company to develop a transition plan that protects Meridian members,” said Health and Human Services Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas. “Meridian’s members and providers can be assured that we will work very closely with Meridian on how best to transition their members to our other two MCOs.”
Meridian and DHHS say they are working on the details of a transition plan as the company continues to provide services until July 31. During the transition period, Meridian members will receive the same benefits and providers will continue to be reimbursed by Meridian.
