Insurance department posts plan enrollment figures
CONCORD (AP) - The latest New Hampshire enrollment figures for President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law show Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield with 60 percent of the individual market.
The New Hampshire Insurance Department recently began requiring insurance companies selling plans through the marketplace to submit monthly enrollment numbers.
Anthem was the only company offering marketplace plans last year, but this year it was joined by four other companies. According to the latest numbers, a total of 45,504 people had signed up for plans in New Hampshire by April 1, and 60 percent of them chose Anthem plans. Just under 16 percent chose Minuteman Health, about 15 percent chose Harvard Pilgrim and just under 9 percent chose Maine Community Health. Assurant Health had less than 1 percent of the total.
