Proposed bills address NH healthcare
New Hampshire lawmakers are considering a variety of proposals that would affect how the state implements the controversial healthcare law or prevent participation. One bill would include New Hampshire in the federal lawsuit over the healthcare reform bill, which was heard last month in the Supreme Court, while another proposal would prohibit the state from implementing a state health care exchange. Beyond these bills, however, yet another proposal, HB 1560, would allow New Hampshire to bypass the Affordable Care Act and other federal healthcare programs. HB 1560 could allow New Hampshire to join an interstate Health Care Compact, which would enable members to enact regulations that supersede federal healthcare law.
