ACA insurance contract set for vote
The Medicaid guidelines will require the department to alter its Qualified Health Plan (QHP) certification process, the department said.
The insurance department, Health and Human Services and the federal Center for Medicaid Services will have to work together to ensure continuity of care for all persons covered under the qualified Health Plans as they move between different types of coverage, Sevigny said.
Greg Moore of American For Prosperity NH and Medicaid expansion opponent said it would make more sense to wait until the state has received the federal wavier to use private commercial insurance before extending the contract.
Registration for one part of the plan began July 1, while state officials wait to hear whether CMS approves amendments to the state Medicaid plan before implementing the rest of the program.
The federal government pays 100 percent of the costs during the first three years of expansion and then gradually reduces its share to 90 percent after seven years.
