NH DHHS Releases Additional Analysis of Medicaid Expansion under the ACA

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

(DHHS) is releasing additional analysis on Medicaid Expansion under the

Affordable Care Act. This report will include how Medicaid Expansion would

impact New Hampshire’s State budget, New Hampshire’s economy, and impact to

the insurance industry as well as providers. The briefing will be held

Friday at 1 PM, in the DHHS Brown Building, 129 Pleasant Street, Concord,


This report by the Lewin Group is the second in a two phase analysis of the

State’s option to expand its Medicaid program. Based on the US Supreme

Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act, states have the option of

expanding Medicaid coverage to individuals with incomes under 138-percent

of the federal poverty level. Friday’s briefing will review findings from

Phase I of the report, which provided data on the number of residents who

would be eligible for coverage under the expansion and associated costs to

the state.

Lewin Group researchers will be at the briefing to explain their methods

and findings as well as to answer questions.
