Medicaid expansion opponents in New Hampshire: Few will benefit for the cost
Several lawmakers and representatives of groups opposed to expansion will speak at the news conference organized by Americans for Prosperity — NH.
If an agreement can be reached, a bill will be introduced Nov. 7 and voted on Nov. 21 after public hearings Nov. 12.
"Medicaid expansion would cause over 20,000 New Hampshire residents to lose their high-quality private health insurance, and often their doctors, to get dumped into a low-quality Medicaid program that is already coming apart at the seams," said Greg Moore, state director of Americans for Prosperity — New Hampshire, adding "Medicaid Expansion is wrong for New Hampshire."
Those eligible under the program would be individuals earning about $16,000 a year, and three-member families earning $23,000.
The news conference is at 1 p.m. in the Legislative Office Building.
