New Hampshire’s new work requirement rules for Medicaid recipients would be changed and possibly eliminated under a bill that has passed the House.

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 on Wednesday approved a bill that broadens the allowed exemptions, and ends the work requirements entirely if 500 or more people lose coverage.
