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.
