CONCORD — New Hampshire consumers shopping for health insurance under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law will have more plans to pick from next year, and every hospital in the state will be included in at least two provider networks.
Enrollment opens Nov. 1 for coverage that will take effect next January. Four of the health insurers are repeat players — Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Maine Community Health Options and Minuteman Health. The fifth, Ambetter, will be new.
The N.H. Insurance Department said Friday the companies will offer 81 plans, up from 60 this year. Each of the state's 26 acute care hospitals will have contracts with at least two insurers, and both Harvard Pilgrim and Maine Community Health have contracts with all 26.
