The three companies chosen to manage health care for about 180,000 New Hampshire Medicaid recipients reassured state officials Monday about their commitment to the state.
The Executive Council, which will soon vote on contracts totaling nearly $1 billion over five years, held a public information session to hear from the two current managed care companies — Well Sense and New Hampshire Healthy Families — and the third poised to join them, AmeriHealth Caritas. While Councilor Russell Prescott said he worries that adding a third company will result in lopsided enrollments that could force one company out of the market, Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeffrey Meyers said he was confident each company’s market share would be fairly equitable within 18 to 24 months.
