SB 313 (2018) reforming New Hampshire's Medicaid and Premium Assistance Program
House/Senate Bill: NH Senate
Description: Continues New Hampshire's expanded Medicaid program. This bill makes several significant changes to the program. First, it moves participants off private insurance and into managed care, similar to traditional Medicaid enrollees. Second, it adds a work requirement for participants. Third, it removes funding from voluntary contributions by health care providers, which the federal government said is illegal. Instead, bill sponsors say the program will use revenue from alcohol sales to fund the program. SB 313 also establishes the Granite Workforce program, which will use some federal welfare funding to establish a program that will help place low income individuals in jobs in areas with workforce shortages.
