5/19/2013 Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire individual insurance policies are now available though the online health insurance exchanges.
3/11/2013 This page was updated to include a link to the insurance plan that will be used to determine specific "essential health benefits" for insurance that qualified for 2014 federal tax purposes. Also, a link to additional covered benefits required by state law. Non-qualified insurance is likely to continue to be available at a lower cost that does not include these benefits nor qualify for federal tax purposes.
6/25/2012 New Hampshire Governor Lynch signed into law a prohibition from setting up a state health insurance exchange. The law says that no "state agency, department or political subdivision shall plan, create, participate in or enable a state based exchange for health insurance." The federal Department of Health and Human Services still could establish a health insurance exchange in the state at a later date. This new legislation does not affect Freedom Benefits insurance exchange from operating in the state because the project is organized by collaboration of commercial businesses and funded entirely with private investment. Consumer assistance is provided through volunteer efforts through www.OnlineNavigator.org. The supplemental insurance exchange resources will continue regardless of the state's position on their public insurance exchange.
2/21/2012 New Hampshire health insurance mandates - a recently updated listing is now available online in PDF format. We made special note that the state's continuation of coverage law applies only to persons leaving group insurance plans and not to those leaving individual insurance. Details of the state's Preexisting Condition Insurance Plan are also available.
2/1/2012 The Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, a division of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reported that as of June 30, 2011 Anthem BCBS is the state's largest health insurance provider and as such, earns the right to set the benchmark for the development of the state's essential benefit plans to debut in 2014 under health reform law.
6/15/2011 UnitedHealthcare's Golden Rule Insurance Company will no longer offer Short Term Medical plans to new customers in New Hampshire as of June 16, 2011. This change does not affect existing customers in the state who have Golden Rule's Short Term Medical coverage. This change removes the only remaining UnitedHealthcare individual insurance product from the state of New Hampshire. Alternative short term major medical insurance products are available in New Hampshire from Markel Insurance Company and Standard Security Life Insurance.
12/16/2010 New Hampshire Insurance Department officials met representatives of 44 other states and numerous employees of the federal Health and Human Services Department in Washington DC this week for a two-day working meeting to discuss the next steps in establish a government-run health insurance exchange under the American Health Benefit Exchange Model Act. Their attendance at this meeting was paid for by a $1 million federal grant awarded by HHS in September to the state for research how to set up an insurance exchange. Two states (Alaska and Minnesota) declined to participate, saying that it was a waste of taxpayer money. Four other states (not identified in press reports) that received federal grants did not send representatives to the meeting. Attendees included representatives of 16 states that are suing the federal government in an attempt to overturn the federal health reform law; specifically the requirement that forces individuals to buy health insurance on the insurance exchange or pay a hefty tax fine.
In its initial federal grant request for the insurance exchange project, New Hampshire said that it would: 1) Obtain an impact analysis on public sector program costs and effect on the general fund of the State, 2) Inform, educate, and involve stakeholders including a utilization assessment, 3) Develop a general public education and outreach plan regarding an Exchange, 4) Develop a macroeconomic model to predict plan migration, analyze the effect of New Hampshire insurance mandates, and identify and quantify risks of adverse selection and insurance market disturbance, 5) Exchange and analysis of budgetary impacts on State as well as appropriate internal and external controls, and 6) Obtain analysis of current State laws and regulations relevant to Exchange and a summary of policy and legislative recommendations for establishing an Exchange and Affordable Care Act implementation.
The meeting reportedly did not address the role of the commercial health insurance exchanges on the implementation of new competing government systems. The model act does not address inter-state insurance exchange proposals nor insurance sales across state lines. Federal officials admitted that they may not be able to provide further guidance until 2012. Meanwhile, most states are motivated to continue to meet requirements to obtain additional funding promised by the federal government for the establishment of insurance exchange by 2014. Freedom Benefits has previously voiced the opinion that the huge amount of money being spent to set up alternate insurance sales system technologies could be better used providing health benefits to the public. We proposed on the Universal Health Insurance blog that adequate commercial insurance sales systems are already in place that could be modified in a public/private partnership to make health insurance more affordable.
