News Feature: Managed Medicaid Transition Puts Governor Hassan In Difficult Position

Feb 24, 2014

A group of developmentally disabled New Hampshire residents, along with the agencies that provide services for them, are heading to court later this week. They’re seeking to block the state’s plan to shift management of those services to private, out-of-state entities…a move the state says is necessary to cut costs. As NHPR’s Todd Bookman reports, the fight puts Governor Maggie Hassan, who has a disabled son, in a difficult position.
