The New Hampshire House has given preliminary approval to changing the state’s new work requirement rules for Medicaid recipients and possibly eliminating the requirements altogether.
In reauthorizing the program for another five years, lawmakers last year added new rules requiring most recipients to spend at least 100 hours a month working, going to school or participating in community service. The House sent a bill to its Finance Committee on Thursday that broadens the allowed exemptions, and ends the work requirements entirely if 500 or more people lose coverage.
