Health Benefit Marketplace Public Hearing

NH State Capitol

A public hearing cohosted by AARP and New Hampshire Voices for Health – to inform health benefit Marketplace planning and implementation – will be held on March 8 at 10:30 am in Rooms 206-208 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord.  This follows a survey capturing input from a broad range of stakeholders on the topic. 

New Hampshire’s health benefit Marketplace will be open for enrollment on October 1 with coverage available as of January 1, 2014.  The Marketplace, also known as the health benefit Exchange, is a competitive marketplace where the full range of information about health insurance plans and other coverage options will be presented clearly and in an easy-to-compare manner. 

At the March 8 hearing, interested stakeholder groups and the public are invited to address policymakers and others with decision-making and advisory roles related to the planning and implementation of New Hampshire’s health benefit Marketplace.  Oral and written testimony will be collected and integrated into a report to inform immediate and long-term decision-making of state and federal decision-makers. 

We encourage you to attend and hear directly from interested stakeholders and members of the public.  To confirm your attendance, please email
