We will be mailing a letter to New Hampshire members in mid-November about important plan updates. Some members will receive information explaining the new preventive services for women. Other members who have already received a women's preventive notification will only have a revised contract and endorsement updates in their member letter.
As required by the Affordable Care Act, also known as federal health care reform, all existing members will receive expanded preventive coverage for women on January 1, 2013 (with one exception noted below). The following services, drugs and supplies received from network providers will be paid at 100%:
Expanded Coverage for Women
Members on non-grandfathered plans will receive all of the benefits listed above. Members on grandfathered plans will also receive all of the benefits listed above except prescription contraceptives (birth control) and counseling for women. These changes will be effective January 1, 2013.
Details regarding the expanded women’s preventive coverage and other plan updates will begin mailing to members around November 11, 2012.
