NH lawmakers divided over health overhaul funds
AP Republican lawmakers insist the latest attempt to bring federal funding for the Affordable Care Act to New Hampshire violates state law, while
The state insurance department was awarded a $5 million grant to educate consumers about the federal health overhaul law before enrollment in new online insurance markets starts Oct. 1, but Republicans blocked the state from accepting it. Last week, the insurance department said a different group the quasigovernmental, nonprofit New Hampshire Health Plan had applied to accept the money instead.
That move has the backing of Democratic Gov. , who angered Republicans in February by deciding to have the state partner with the federal government to both manage the health plans offered in the new markets and provide consumer assistance.
Governor Hassan supports the Health Plans application in order to ensure that statelevel experts who best understand New Hampshires insurance market and the needs of our people are the ones providing assistance and information to families, individuals and small businesses looking to access critical health coverage not the federal government, Hassans spokesman, , said Tuesday.
But Republican members of the Legislatures argue that Hassan and the insurance department are trying to circumvent lawmakers. State law specifies that committee shall determine all policies regarding implementation of the federal law, said Sen. , RBedford.
Its pretty darn clear, he said. We weighed in on this in the Legislature, we weighed in on this in the and we weighed in on this in the Health Reform Oversight Committee. The fact that any governor or any commissioner would try to circumvent will of the Legislature should throw up a real red flag.
Sen. , RWolfeboro, argued that New Hampshire Health Plan, which operates the states highrisk pool, is a state entity and thus subject to legislative approval. And he insists that the state has never formally entered into a partnership with the federal government for consumer assistance because the insurance department never provided the committee with a detailed memorandum of understanding.
There is no consumer assistance partnership, he said. It does not exist.
Democrats on the committee said the New Hampshire Health Plan doesnt need the committees permission to pursue the funding and that they fully back the groups application.
Connecting consumers and experts is essential, Sen. , Rep. and Rep. said in a statement.
The actions taken by Republican members of this committee and the Legislature to block the from using the $5.4 million federal consumer assistance grant were extremely misguided and hurt New Hampshire consumers, the lawmakers said.
spokesman said lawmakers shouldnt be telling independent nonprofits how to operate, and he accused Republicans of following a national campaign strategy to disrupt implementation of the federal law in hopes that the resulting mess will win them votes in 2014.
the FunAdvice Blog
Our sign up process, we thought, was great. Back in January, we achieved numbers that were better than any we had before of sign ups and post sign up confirmations. It was great.
Then we took a fresh look at some of the issues people write to us about. We thought, what if people could use the site, instantly? We tried it before years ago but fell in love with different notions, so we decided to bring it back to the old schoo way of doing things.
Exit rates from our site up page were 30% until last week. The big difference? Previously, new members got a thanks page, and an RTFM style message telling them to fetch an email before they could login and use the service.
Boo. Now, we have a 15% exit rate from the sign up page. I think we can do better still, but its a solid boost in the numbers.
As a former marketing consultant, I hate stereotypes. Of the owners, we have only 33% American born citizens as well. If that was what I was after, Id start watching Jersey Shore.
Its called Rescue at Pine Ridge, and its been critically acclaimed by readers on both Barnes Noble as well as Amazon.
We hear you. Now that its a company and not virtual, the plan is to build, launch and improve things weekly so you should be thrilled with our performance even more than before! over the next six months at least :
The Folk Song Index
The opportunity to develop a collaborative project between a college library and a notforprofit, educational organization does not happen often, making the Oberlin College and Sing Out! collaboration special.
The project began in 2004 when Kathy Abromeit from the Oberlin Conservatory Library called Mark Moss at Sing Out! seeking advice to start a folk song database at Oberlin. Sing Out! had started such a database years earlier and agreed to send their database as seed for a larger collaborative project that the Oberlin College Libraries would host.
The records that had been entered and sent to Oberlin were from the Sing Out! Resource Center, a collection of recordings, photos, books, periodicals and other items, located at the corporate headquarters of Sing Out! in downtown Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Since that time, Oberlin Conservatory Library student employees, under the supervision of Kathy Abromeit,
have been indexing folk song anthologies owned in the Oberlin Conservatory Library.
We hope that you sit back and enjoy the cultural diversity and heritage of all the traditional and contemporary folk musics listed in the index. This is where you meet the music of the people!
