A company facing scrutiny for its abrupt departure from managing Iowa’s Medicaid system is one of the three private organizations chosen by New Hampshire to manage the care of 180,000 Granite Staters.
AmeriHealth Caritas had the highest-scored bid out of four bids the state received to manage the program, which is worth close to $1 billion over four years, according to documents on the Department of Health and Humans Service’s website. Well Sense Health Plan and New Hampshire Healthy Families, who the state currently contracts with to manage its Medicaid program, were also selected to provide health care services for pregnant women, caretakers and children, as well as the elderly and disabled.
