Maggie Hassan's Statement on Federal Government Approving Medicaid Managed Care Plan

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Manchester, NH

Democratic candidate for Governor Maggie Hassan released the following statement today on the federal government approving the state's Medicaid Managed Care plan.

"We have a responsibility to spend taxpayer dollars wisely and to be open to innovations that can save money. That also means ensuring that we are getting what we pay for -- high-quality health care for the children, seniors and people with disabilities being helped through Medicaid. As Governor, I will issue by Executive Order a commission of consumers and financial and health care experts, to directly advise me on the state's transition to Medicaid Managed Care."

"A well-operated Medicaid Managed Care program can and should save money and allow New Hampshire to maintain important investments in health care. But financial savings cannot come at the expense of quality, accessible care. The transition schedule is ambitious, and the change will affect the lives and health care of thousands of New Hampshire citizens. As Governor, I will be directly involved in making sure that the transition to Medicaid Managed Care is done right, and that is working for taxpayers and people."
