Overview of NH’s Adult Protection Program 
Presenter:  Rachel Lakin, Administrator Adult Protective Services Program

Help for people with QMB who get bills from their Medicare providers

If you’re among the 7 million Americans enrolled in the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) Program, doctors, suppliers, and other providers aren’t allowed to bill you for Medicare costs when you receive covered medical services, equipment, and supplies. Your Medicare premiums, as well as costs like deductibles, coinsurance, and co-payments, are all a benefit under the QMB program.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has heard from older consumers and people with disabilities who reported getting wrongful bills for medical care, even though they had QMB coverage. Older consumers have also submitted complaints to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, reporting that debt collectors repeatedly attempted to collect these types of bills, or sent this information to credit reporting companies.

Read or download a tip sheet about QMB and provider billing.

New NHCarePath Flyer

This flyer discusses restrictions that are in place that may affect people when they visit their pharmacy with an opioid prescription.
