Update on the New Hampshire Health Protection Plan (Medicaid Expansion)

Submitted by Marie Mulroy

NHPHA and its partners are still meeting several times a week to prepare to get this important piece of legislation passed.  To date, there are two pieces of legislation filed in the House of Representatives and we are still waiting to see the language on both of these bills.   


During December and January, NHPHA and its partners will be hosting several town meetings across the state designed to make the case to legislators that NH people want and need the Medicaid Expansion to be reauthorized.    If you see an event near you and are interested in attending, let Deanna Bennett info@nhpha.org know.   As of now, the following is the list of meetings.  If there is one in your area, if you could call your State Representatives or Senator to let them know that would be very helpful.    Also, if you or your organization want to participate in any of the partnership committees working on this bill, let Deanna know that also.
