Providence College Research Examines New Hampshire’s Implementation of Affordable Care Act…Provides Lessons for Other States

Providence, R.I. – Providence College researchers released a report on New Hampshire’s participation in the federal implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that points to the state’s “wait and see” approach to health care reform. According to the researchers, support for the ACA remains conditional, as state officials seek to harness federal funds to achieve the state’s own fiscal goals and expand coverage on its own terms. “ACA implementation in New Hampshire is occurring in a political climate with a strong preference for local control and a well-established tradition of limited government,” said Dr. Todd Olszewski, assistant professor of health policy and management at PC and one of the report’s co-authors.
