HEALTHCARE

Medicaid Expansion Is Reauthorized

Reauthorization of Medicaid Expansion has been the top priority of House Democrats this term and the reasons are simple. This program utilizes federal funds to provide health care to over 53,000 low-income Granite Staters who cannot otherwise afford it, it reduces the uncompensated care costs that drive up the cost of health care for all, and most importantly, Medicaid Expansion is New Hampshire’s number one tool to combat the opioid epidemic

“The deliberation and bipartisan collaboration that produced this bill exemplifies the way government should work. I thank the legislature for coming together to overwhelmingly support continuing a program that benefits New Hampshire in so many ways," House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook) said.
