The New Hampshire Health Insurance Market
The New Hampshire individual health insurance market is a guarantee issue state under health reform, which means that applicants cannot be declined for health coverage. There is a state risk pool called the New Hampshire Health Plan High Risk Pool (there is an acronym, thankfully: HPHRP) for people with health problems who may need more substantial coverage than the individual market can provide.
Additionally besides HIPAA eligible individuals, the HPHRP is also available to any New Hampshire resident who has been declined for health coverage by a carrier due to any health condition. The risk pool is also open to individuals that have offered coverage at more expensive premiums as well.
And because the New Hampshire health insurance companies are allowed to place permanent riders on their policies, HPHRP can also be applied for if you are approved for a private health insurance plan, if they put a rider on a medical condition.
For more information about the government health plans available in New Hampshire you can call East Coast Health Insurance at 888 803 5917 or you can call the HPHRP at 800 578 3272 if you think you might be eligible. Medicaid coverage can be obtained in New Hampshire by calling 800 852 3345, which also includes the SCHIP through Health Kids for New Hampshire children that need medical insurance.
