Obamacare Open Enrollment Kicks Off Nov. 1


The six-week window for people who buy their own health insurance through the Affordable Care Act begins Thursday.

Three insurance companies—Anthem, Harvard Pilgrim and Ambetter—are offering a total of 17 different plans in New Hampshire.

Even if you like your current plan, consumers are encouraged to shop around as prices and policies tend to shift from year to year. Overall, premiums for 2019 are down slightly from current rates.

The open enrollment window runs through December 15th.

The N.H. Insurance Department as well as CoveredNewHampshire.org have resources for consumers with questions.
