  6. What Changed in 2006? • ServiceLink Resource Center consolidated existing information, referral and long-term support counseling and situational assessment functions. It formally integrated clinical level of care determinations and Medicaid financial eligibility into a streamlined community-based operation. The ServiceLink Resource Center model achieved State-wide implementation in the end of 2006. • In January 2007 the ServiceLink Network became the contractor for the SHIP (State Health Insurance Program) Program and the Senior Medicare Patrol. Every ServiceLink now has a Medicare Coordinator on staff.

NH has 190,000 Medicare recipients 20,000 recipients are Medicare/Medicaid (dualeligible) An additional 40,000 recipients are below 150% FPL Prior to 2007 the SHIP was contracted to a single I&R/help-line organization working primarily out of a single location in central NH. A Brief NH SHIP History

  8. The ServiceLink Network became the logical partner of the SHIP in 2005 with the introduction of Part D due to their State-wide presence. ServiceLink was able to do local education and outreach to both consumers and providers. All ServiceLink staff who were not already SHIP certified became trained on Part D and LIS. ServiceLink was able to provide 1:1 counseling with Medicare recipients in their offices around the State. Incorporating SHIP into the Resource Center model

  9. In 2007 the State of New Hampshire awarded the SHIP contract to the ServiceLink Network. Every ServiceLink now has a Medicare Coordinator on staff who is dedicated to Medicare education, outreach and volunteer management.
