NH House sends Senate Medicaid plan to governor

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire's House has sent a bill to expand Medicaid programs to cover a group of poor adults eligible for federal subsidies under the health care overhaul law to the governor.

The House voted 202-132 Tuesday to pass bipartisan Senate plan to use federal Medicaid funds to buy private health coverage for an estimated 50,000 adults for the next two-and-a-half years. Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan has said she will sign the bill.

The Democratic-led House rejected nine Republican amendments, including ones to cap the program and block its implementation until federal permission is received to spend Medicaid money on private health coverage.

New Hampshire is one of six states that had not decided whether to expand Medicaid.
