AmeriHealth N.H. Caritas new contract

NASHUA — AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire and SolutionHealth announced they have signed a contract that will allow AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire members to receive care from SolutionHealth’s hospitals, physicians, and other affiliated providers.

AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire, the state’s newest managed care organization (MCO), will begin serving New Hampshire Medicaid enrollees in September 2019 and is part of the AmeriHealth Caritas Family of Companies.
