Program Description

The New Hampshire Medicaid program is a Federal and state funded program that serves needy individuals and families in New Hampshire who meet financial and other eligibility requirements and certain other individuals who lack adequate resources to pay for medical care.

The program provides payment for medical services ranging from routine preventive medical care for children to institutional care for the elderly and disabled.
