Consumers shopping for health insurance thought the HIX will have at least five companies to choose from for coverage in 2015, compared to only one company this year.
New Hampshire residents have asked for options,” said New Hampshire Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny. “In 2015, they will have five insurance companies to choose from, as well as a variety of plans and networks. It’s all about choice — choice of carriers, choice of plans, and choice of provider networks. Choice is good for consumers and good for competition.”

In 2014, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is the only insurance company offering health insurance plans on the Marketplace. The 2015 Marketplace will look quite different. In addition to Assurant Health and Anthem, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care of New England and the Massachusetts-based co-op Minuteman Health also have announced their intent to offer plans.Having a larger number of carriers will give consumers many more choices in terms of cost, plan design, and provider network.
