State Will Have Input Into Federal Health Care Exchange, Says Insurance Commissioner
Several weeks ago, Gov. John Lynch signed a bill that blocked the state from setting up a health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act.
That means, under the act, the federal government will set up an exchange for New Hampshire, to give individuals who were previously unable to buy insurance access to health care coverage.
Will having a federally run exchange instead of a state one make a big difference for New Hampshire, or is it largely a distinction without a difference? To answer those questions, All Things Considered host Brady Carlson spoke with Commissioner Roger Sevigny of the New Hampshire Insurance Department.
