expand He-W619.02 State of NH Policy

Official Dosomething.org Project

The Problem

Currently this policy favors one group of Elderly and Disabled Adult over another group. When individuals are applying for the Medicaid program for the State of NH one group is offered an opportunity to waive a face to face interview because they live out in the community, while individuals who live in a Nursing Home are not given this options. Both programs require the exact same financial and medicaid requires when the State of NH makes there decision on eligibility.

Plan of Action

Communicating with the Commissioner of Health and Human Services to get this policy expanded to include the Nursing Home clients. I have been working on this for over a year and a half. I am currently working with my local Small Business Development Center to prepare a presentation to the Governor for the State of NH to help.
