New Hampshire businesses vexed by insurance delay


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire businesses aren't happy with the latest delay in the small group health insurance market created by the Affordable Care Act, but some are more understanding than others.

Companies have been able to use the Small Business Health Options marketplace since last fall, but the online enrollment portal isn't expected to launch until November. New Hampshire's insurance commissioner wants to delay a key feature that would allow employees to pick their coverage from a list of plans.

Nancy Clark owns an advertising agency in North Conway. She is disappointed by the delay but hopes she will eventually be able to get the best plan at the most affordable price.

Jennifer Kretovic with Parker Education says the Concord company saved 10 percent through the marketplace.
