New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (R) announced he is halting rollout of the state’s Medicaid work requirements program until November, due to lack of participation that would have led to sweeping cuts from the Medicaid rolls. About 18,000 people in the target population, the state’s approximately 50,000 adult Medicaid expansion enrollees, did not meet any of the reporting requirements. Many enrollees still were not aware of the new rules despite outreach efforts, according to state officials. Of New Hampshire’s 175,234 Medicaid beneficiaries, about 28.5% are required to participate in the community engagement program.
