NHDP - ICYMI -- Concord Monitor: Alternative to Medicaid expansion discussed; would cost state millions more
Key Point: "Calling the program 'DirectCare New Hampshire,' Roy proposed a fully state-funded program, with no federal involvement, to take the place of expanded Medicaid. Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government would pay the full cost of enrolling almost 58,000 people into Medicaid for the first three years. Roy’s alternative would cost the state $46 million to provide coverage for 11,500 people in 2014... The annual premium cost for an individual would be about $412, plus a $5,950 deductible.... Roy drafted the proposal at the request of Sen. Nancy Stiles, a Hampton Republican and member of the Medicaid expansion commission."
