The Executive Council has green-lighted a program for Medicaid recipients to learn about mandatory work requirements, awarded about a five-percent step increase to a number of high-ranking state employees, and approved some changes to the contract for psychiatric services at the New Hampshire Hospital.
At its meeting Wednesday, the Executive Council approved a contract with MAXIMUS Health Services, Inc., a Virginia company, for an outreach program to educate Medicaid health insurance recipients on the new 100-hour monthly work requirement. The state will spend about $10,000 to get $80,000 from the federal government for the program.
