NH DHHS Releases Phase II Study on Medicaid Expansion 1/11/13

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services

(DHHS) will hold a briefing on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 1 PM to release

the second part of a two-phase study of New Hampshire’s option to expand

its Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The US Supreme

Court ruled last June that the ACA’s proposed Medicaid expansion is

optional for states. DHHS has worked with a national health policy and

human services consulting firm, the Lewin Group, to determine what the pros

and cons are for expanding New Hampshire’s Medicaid program. Lewin

presented the first phase of the analysis in November and will release the

final phase of the study on Friday. Lewin researchers will be on hand to

explain the analysis, as well as to answer questions.
