INS-17-031-AP CANCELLED - Public Hearing
Appliation for Federal Innovation Waiver and Individual Market Stabilization

Pursuant to the provisions of RSA 404-G:12, I and RSA 420-N:6-a, as amended in 2017 N.H. Laws Section 221, the New Hampshire Insurance Department will hold two public hearings on proposed market stabilization measures for the state’s individual health insurance market, including the submission of an application for a State Innovation Waiver under section 1332 of the federal Affordable Care Act.

The New Hampshire Insurance Department (NHID) is cancelling the public hearings scheduled for August 2nd and August 3rd relative to its market stabilization plan and proposed 1332 waiver application.

Consistent with today’s vote of the Joint Health Reform Oversight Committee, the NHID will continue to explore options for the 1332 waiver, and will reschedule the hearings once there is more clarity about the specifics of the state’s approach.
