Nashua Telegraph Editorial

Supports Medicaid Expansion

Lawmakers have an opportunity to extend Medicaid to more low-income adults through the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire.

The Nashua Telegraph today took a position in favor of the expansion because it would help thousands of hard-working people in New Hampshire who do not have insurance.

“First and foremost, it would provide much-needed health coverage to tens of thousands of low-income residents who are now uninsured and less likely to seek preventive care. That contributes to a sicker population in need of more medical services – at higher costs.”
