Step2 MCM logoYesterday, Commissioner Toumpas announced that "Step 2" of the plan to put N.H.'s long term care services (including DD and ABD services) into Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) has been delayed "indefinitely".

At yesterday's Medicaid Managed Care Commission meeting, the Commissioner announced that there will be a delay in ALL Step 2 services as they relate to MMC, specifically the dates for phases 1 and 2 of Step 2 (originally set at 1/1/15 and 4/1/15 respectively) and they would now be delayed with “no definite date to begin”. The Commissioner also stated that there was no date for phase 3 either. According to the Commissioner, at the next MMC Commission meeting in Gorham in November, there will be a concept paper about all phases of Step 2, but there will be no dates for any Step 2 phase at that time.
