Legislative Update Week of March 12
This week, the House Commerce Committee recommended an amendment to HB 1471, a bill creating insurance parity between remote telemedicine and in-office encounters with patients. That bill is supported by NHNPA. The Committee is recommending to the full House that a legislative study committee be created to review this further. The House will vote on the amendment on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the House HHS Committee will be holding a public hearing on SB 313, the Medicaid Expansion reauthorization. This top-priority bill for NHNPA will be likely to be voted on soon by the House, so we are asking all NHNPA members to contact their local House members right away to explain the importance of this legislation for the health of New Hampshire citizens. Let us know if you need help figuring out who your representatives are and how to contact them.
