The future of New Hampshire’s expanded Medicaid program has been thrown into uncertainty after a key legislative committee rejected federal changes to a work requirement that was negotiated in a bipartisan compromise at the State House.
The current program is scheduled to expire on Dec. 31.
Lawmakers spent much of the past two years crafting the compromise to continue the program that provides health insurance to nearly 50,000 low-income New Hampshire residents with the addition of a work requirement for certain able-bodied applicants.
