Sununu Signs Medicaid Expansion Bill

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has signed a bill to continue New Hampshire's expanded Medicaid program for another five years.

The current program uses Medicaid funds to purchase private health plans for about 50,000 low-income residents. It would have expired this year if lawmakers didn't reauthorize it.

The bill also changes its structure to a more cost-effective managed care model. The plan also imposes new work requirements on enrollees and use 5 percent of liquor revenues to cover the state's cost as federal funding decreases.
