There are four ways to create an account in the marketplace (exchange) and complete the enrollment process:
- By phone
- In person
- By mail
There are four types of helpers consumers can contact when they need in-person enrollment assistance from a trained and certified person in their community.
NH Department of Insurance Health Insurance Resources
- CoveringNewHampshire.org was launched nearly three months after enrollment began in the online health insurance markets.
- Republicans initially blocked the state Insurance Department from accepting federal money for consumer assistance, prompting the New Hampshire Health Plan to apply for the money instead.
- Consumers cannot use the website to sign up for coverage — they must use the federal healthcare.gov website, call a federal help line or visit an in-person assister to start the enrollment process.
- The site provides New Hampshire-specific information about the plans they can choose from, where to find in-person help and what kind of financial assistance is available.
