Joint public hearing dates set for Medicaid eligibility
A joint Senate and House public hearing on the proposal based on the final recommendations of the Commission to Study Medicaid Expansion will be held Nov. 12.
The House and Senate will meet Nov. 21 to vote on the proposed legislation.
The Executive Council on Wednesday approved Gov. Maggie Hassan’s request for a special session with Executive Councilor Chris Sununu, R-Newfields, the lone dissenting vote.
State officials estimate that about 49,000 low-income adults will be eligible for the Medicaid rolls under expansion and the state’s health care providers would receive $2.4 billion over the next seven years.
Those eligible under the program would be individuals earning about $16,000 a year, and three-member families earning $23,000.
