CONCORD &#-; New Hampshire joined 25 other states Thursday in expanding Medicaid eligibility when Gov. Maggie Hassan signed Senate Bill 413 into law.The bipartisan legislation will provide health insurance to 50,000 low-income adults in a two-and-a-half year pilot program using private health insurers paid for with federal Medicaid money.“Our bipartisan health care expansion plan is a historic step forward for the health and financial well-being of Granite State families, businesses and communities,” Hassan said. “It is a fiscally responsible, uniquely New Hampshire solution that will inject $2.5 billion in federal funds into our state&#';s economy and improve the lives of 50,000 hard-working people who deserve the security of health insurance.Lawmakers, supporters, advocates and citizens joined in the signing ceremony in the Executive Council Chambers.
