NEW SERIES FROM THE EXCHANGE CONTINUES CONVERSATION AROUND THE PANDEMIC’S TOLL ON MENTAL HEALTH

Nearly a year into New Hampshire’s COVID-19 emergency, stress is a constant presence in the lives of our residents, on our social systems, and in our communities. NHPR’s weekday talk show The Exchange will air a three-part series in February and March to convene important conversations about mental health, featuring experts, conversations with community members, and resources to help.

Maine Community Health Options

One of the new insurers set to begin offering plans on New Hampshire’s health care exchange next year announced its rates Thursday.

Maine Community Health Options is one of five insurance companies offering plans in 2015.

The non-profit, member-run co-op, was the first to announce its rates, saying it will offer ten different plans and will include all of the state’s 26 hospitals in its provider network.

Dr. John Yindra, the company’s Chief Medical Officer, says people with chronic conditions will be able to choose from a range of plans, and costs should be low.
