Anthem Blue Cross says it’s extending the renewal date for canceled health insurance plans to December 16.
Last month, the company sent cancelation notices to 22,000 New Hampshire customers because current plans didn’t satisfy stricter new protections in the Affordable Care Act. Customers looking to renew originally had until November 15 to start the process, though that deadline was pushed back to December 1. Today's announcement gives policyholders an additional two weeks.
Now that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, has launched, just how affordable will it make health insurance in New Hampshire? We hosted a special panel featuring Laura Knoy, host of NHPR's The Exchange, along with Tiffany Eddy of the Live Free or Die Alliance for a town hall discussion broadcast live on the web on Tuesday, November 19th.

On-air fund drives are one of the most effective ways to raise money for the station and to gauge the quality of our service. We know that NHPR reaches nearly 200,000 weekly listeners through our broadcast from 12 sites across the Granite State. However, we don’t know who many of those people are, or whether they like what we do. There’s no better way to reach our audience and ask for support and feedback than an on-air drive.
You may have heard us talking on air about The Walter Peterson Legacy Society. In NH, the name Walter Peterson is synonymous with public service. Walter is remembered as a state politician who engaged all parties to come to agreeable solutions, engaged any community he was working with in civic dialog, and was a true gentleman. NHPR’s Walter Peterson Legacy Society carries on those values – supporting public radio in New Hampshire for the next generation of listeners and journalists.
Copper Cannon Camp is tucked away in Franconia Notch on 128 acres of White Mountain National Forest. In some ways a typical overnight camp with sing-a-longs at night and archery during the day, Copper Cannon is unusual in one respect. As Sean Hurley reports, it's one of only a handful of co-ed camps in the country that's absolutely free for kids of low income families.
Governor Hassan signed a bill Tuesday, making New Hampshire the 19th state to legalize the use of medicinal marijuana. She says the law breaks new ground by giving seriously ill patients what they need.
