The New Hampshire Hospital Association (NHHA) released a report today showing the positive impact of the New Hampshire Health Protection Plan (NHHPP). NHHPP has been up and running for nine months, and the data reported to the NHHA by its member hospitals continues to show reductions in the number of uninsured patients seeking care from New Hampshire’s hospitals. In fact, those reductions have accelerated, with hospitals in New Hampshire seeing emergency room visits by uninsured patients drop by 22%, as compared to the 17% reduction in uninsured emergency room visits that hospitals experienced in 2014. Hospitals also saw reductions in the number of inpatient admissions and outpatient visits, 27% and 15%, respectively.
