New Hampshire insurers outline new marketplace plans ahead of open enrollment


CONCORD, New Hampshire — Insurance companies joining the online marketplace created by President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law in New Hampshire are urging consumers to carefully weigh their options.

Last year, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield was the only company selling health insurance in the marketplace in New Hampshire, but when enrollment opens Saturday, it will be joined by Assurant, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Maine Community Health Options and Minuteman Health. Individuals will have 40 plans to choose from, while small businesses will have 21.

Insurance company officials outlined their plans Friday at a meeting of the state's Health Exchange Advisory Board.

More than 40,000 New Hampshire residents selected health plans during the first enrollment period, and about 23,000 more have enrolled in the state's newly-expanded Medicaid program.
