CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Republican Gov. Chris Sununu says he’s increasingly confident that New Hampshire will get a waiver from the federal government to add a work requirement for Medicaid recipients.

Sununu was in Washington on Wednesday, where he met with officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. He says officials made no guarantees but said they liked what they saw in New Hampshire’s waiver application.

Sununu also met with Vice President Mike Pence, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, and presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway. He said much of the conversation involved pressing the administration to keep New Hampshire at the forefront in providing resources to fight the opioid epidemic.
