CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A special commission is finishing work on is review of a tax on New Hampshire hospitals that produces $176 million for Medicaid and other state spending.
The commission meets Wednesday in hopes of wrapping up its report on the tax. New Hampshire applies the 5.5 percent tax to two categories: inpatient and outpatient hospital net revenues. The state also taxes two other categories — nursing homes and intermediate care facilities — under a different law.
The commission is reviewing more than 30 suggestions ranging from repealing the tax to taking more providers.
