This report analyzes the current health insurance payment system in New Hampshire and factors affecting premium rates and health care costs. The team gathered information through interviews with 26 health care industry stakeholders, including providers, carriers, and consumers. Additionally, the team received data from three large New Hampshire carriers regarding payment methods and plan design. The team supplemented the interviews with an analysis of the 2011 New Hampshire Comprehensive Health Care Information System (NHCHIS), as well as other reports from NHID and nationally published literature on health industry topics.
