N.H. hosts hearing on health marketplaces
State and federal officials who will be involved in designing and managing New Hampshire's market place will hear from a variety of interested parties Friday in Concord.
The federal law requires the creation of marketplaces or exchanges that will offer individuals and their families a choice of private health plans resembling what workers at major companies get. The New Hampshire Legislature passed a law last session prohibiting a state-run exchange, and Gov. Maggie Hassan decided last month to pursue a partnership rather than let the federal governmental operate the exchange.
