New Hampshire Senate Votes for Medicaid Expansion

New York Times: “The state’s Republican-dominated Senate voted Thursday to expand health care coverage to an estimated 50,000 adults using Medicaid funding made available through the Affordable Care Act.”

“New Hampshire would join a small group of states, including Arkansas and Iowa, that have opted to  [use] federal Medicaid money to buy private health insurance.”

“The program would end in 2016, when the federal government’s required contribution to the plan drops below 100 percent, unless it was reauthorized …The measure’s sunset clause was intended to address concerns about paying for the program when federal contributions to it decreased.”
