Governor Chris Sununu Statement Regarding Ambetter's commitment to New Hampshire's individual market
Concord, NH – Today Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement regarding Ambetter's commitment to New Hampshire's individual market:
"Today's announcement by Ambetter is very welcome news and is a result of a rigorous effort to stabilize and preserve New Hampshire's individual market until Obamacare is reformed. As I have previously stated, my administration has been engaged in an intensive and productive dialogue with our insurers to do whatever we can to keep them in New Hampshire's individual market. This includes: providing flexibility in filing deadlines with our state's Department of Insurance (NHID), authorizing NHID and our Department of Health and Human Services to pursue any waiver opportunities, strong advocacy of Cost Savings Reduction (CSR) payments and a commitment to do whatever we can to provide certainty at the state level. We appreciate Ambetter's commitment to New Hampshire and this announcement ensures that New Hampshire will not experience a market failure. We continue to await official word from our state's two largest insurers, Anthem and Harvard Pilgrim, and we will continue working to help ensure that New Hampshire has a competitive market place."
