NH will hold special session on Medicaid expansion

The Washington Post, October 18, 2013
New Hampshire legislators will meet next month to hammer out what leaders hope will be a bipartisan agreement to expand Medicaid after the state's Executive Council voted Wednesday to allow Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) to call a special session. The legislature tried to expand Medicaid, in accordance with the Affordable Care Act, earlier this year during its regular session, but members couldn't come to an agreement. Instead, they set up a bipartisan panel that heard testimony from state and national experts over almost four months. The panel recommended that New Hampshire expand Medicaid to take advantage of $2.5 billion in promised federal funding.
