Commission on Medicaid Benefits when a person enters certain state institutions or correctional facilities - HB 1406

New Futures supports the creation of a Commission to study the termination of Medicaid benefits for individuals entering state and county correctional facilities. NH currently terminates Medicaid benefits upon incarceration, resulting in treatment delays for some individuals when exiting corrections. This commission will evaluate whether NH should move to suspend benefits instead of terminating coverage in these cases. New Futures is following HB 1406 closely and will keep you updated on its status.
