Anthem Makes Decision On N.H. Health Plan Renewals
About 10,000 New Hampshire residents whose individual insurance policies don't comply with President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law will get a chance to renew them for another year.
The Obama administration announced a two-year extension in March for noncompliant policies if states and insurance companies allow it.
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire recently decided to allow the extension, but a company spokesman tells The Associated Press that the extension will be for only year. It will be available for anyone whose policies are due to expire between Oct. 1 and Dec. 1, which includes 4,600 who took advantage of an earlier one-year reprieve.
About 22,000 Anthem policyholders in New Hampshire were told last fall that their policies didn't meet the law's requirements.
