Letter: Good news, bad news
Good news: As of Nov. 14 at 9 a.m., the Affordable Care Act website works great. I signed up on the national website, because former House speaker Bill O’Brien and his buddies wouldn’t let New Hampshire have its own site. The bad news is, I didn’t get health care coverage because the New Hamphsire lawmakers haven’t expanded Medicaid eligibility. This is what I was told: “Based on the information you provided, the new federal health care law provides that you are eligible for free or low-cost health care through New Hampshire Medicaid. However, the state of New Hampshire has chosen not to offer you this new health care coverage at this time.”
The national website works fine, but poor people in New Hampshire will still have no health care coverage.
