NH takes on Medicaid expansion this week

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, N.H. -

New Hampshire's Senate is taking on Medicaid expansion this week.

Thursday, it's expected to vote on a bipartisan agreement to use federal Medicaid money to buy private health insurance for about 50,000 low-income adults. The 2.5-year pilot program's goal is to reduce uncompensated care so that health care premiums for businesses don't go up.

The bill is expected to pass and also has a good chance of passing the House. The Governor supports the plan.
