Medicaid expansion ensures all Granite Staters have access to health care.
The future of Medicaid expansion is in the hands of New Hampshire lawmakers in 2023. Without reauthorization by the state legislature, Medicaid expansion will expire on December 31, 2023 and thousands of Granite Staters will lose access to their health insurance.
Join our fight to protect Medicaid expansion
Medicaid expansion saves lives. Lawmakers need to hear from Granite Staters who have important stories demonstrating how health insurance makes a difference. Join us in advocating for the reauthorization of Medicaid expansion:
- Since the program was launched in 2014 as part of the Affordable Care Act, hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters have used Medicaid expansion to access health care services. Over 90,000 adults aged 19-64 are currently getting the health care they need and deserve thanks to the program. Expanded Medicaid is available to individuals who earn $18,075 or less per year (or less than $36,908 for a family of four).
- Through Medicaid expansion, enrollees are able to access physical, mental, dental, and recovery health services, fill prescriptions, and seek emergency care. Insurance plans are provided by AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire, NH Healthy Families, or WellSense Health Plan.
- Medicaid expansion is New Hampshire's best tool in the fight against the ongoing substance use and mental health crisis. The program has helped expand the state's substance use and mental health treatment capacity.
Fred Kocher is joined by Courtney Tanner and David Juvet to discuss how upcoming political decisions will impact health care in the Granite State.
