Manchester group hosts discussion on Medicaid expansion

March 5, 2018

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — City and state policy makers will join business leaders and residents in Manchester to discuss plans to reauthorize New Hampshire’s expanded Medicaid program.

The Manchester Chamber of Commerce is hosting a community meeting on Medicaid expansion Monday morning.

New Hampshire’s current program has put about 50,000 low-income residents on private insurance plans. The Legislature is considering a bill to continue the program for five years but change its structure to a managed care model, impose new work requirements on enrollees and use 5 percent of liquor revenues to cover the state’s cost as federal funding decreases.
