Anthem Extends Renewal Date For Customers Who Want To Keep Plans

Anthem Blue Cross says it’s extending the renewal date for customers who buy individual policies. The state’s largest health insurance company informedbrokers earlier this week that current policyholders who want to keep their plans will have until the end of the month to renew,  a two week extension from the original deadline of November 15.

The New Hampshire Insurance Department agrees with the move, but in a statementsays it continues to weigh how to respond to President Obama’s announcement Thursday that states now have the option of allowing all canceled insurance plans to be extended into 2014, including plans that don’t satisfy the stricter new protections outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
