Medicaid expansion panel working on recommendation
Modern Healthcare

After spending weeks gathering information, a panel charged with recommending whether New Hampshire expands its Medicaid program is running out of time to make a decision.

At its last meeting, six of the panel’s nine members said they supported accepting federal Medicaid funding to pay for health coverage for an estimated 49,000 poor adults. The panel did not resolve what an expanded program would look like, which is key to a majority recommending going forward.
