HOUSE BILL 1809 PASSES SENATE

CONCORD, N.H. – This afternoon, the New Hampshire Senate voted to pass HB 1809, which will prevent balance billing in certain circumstances. In response, Holly Stevens, Health Policy Coordinator at New Futures, released the following statement:

“Balance billing leads to shocking medical bills for Granite State consumers and can end with New Hampshire residents being buried in unexpected medical debt,” said Stevens. “Thank you to the New Hampshire Senate for recognizing the importance of protecting consumers and passing this bill. I look forward to seeing it signed into law.”
