CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The Obama administration says New Hampshire residents who signed up for coverage under the president's health care law are paying about $87 in premiums on average.
The Department of Health and Human Services released a report Wednesday covering the 36 states where the federal government took the lead in setting up new insurance markets. It found that New Hampshire residents who selected "silver plans," the most popular type, paid an average monthly premium of $87 after tax credits, compared to $80 nationally.
Across all plan types, the average monthly premium in New Hampshire was $390 before tax credits and $100 with the tax credits. More than 40,000 New Hampshire residents selected health plans during the first enrollment period, more than twice the target set by the Obama administration.
