CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A Senate panel is taking a closer look at New Hampshire’s latest plan to expand its Medicaid program.
The Senate Health, Education and Human Services Committee is holding a hearing Tuesday on a tentative agreement to provide the health coverage to at least 50,000 people.
About 12,000 people could get coverage before July if they qualify for an existing program that subsidizes employer-based coverage. An additional 38,000 could start enrolling May 1 for coverage that would begin July 1.
New Hampshire is one of six states still undecided on whether to expand Medicaid as part of the federal health care overhaul.
