Woman’s complaint about Anthem's 'narrow network' to be heard
The patient, Margaret McCarthy, said that Anthem’s provider network for plans sold on the federally operated New Hampshire Health Insurance Marketplace can’t be considered adequate unless Frisbie is allowed to join.
Senatorial candidate Scott Brown on April 16 released a letter he wrote to Sevigny, urging an expedited hearing.
On April 24, Republican gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein called on Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan to move the matter forward.
First District U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter has also been pushing for the hearing.
“I’m pleased that Margaret McCarthy and the Frisbie Hospital community will be able to address Anthem’s narrow network in an adjudicative hearing,” she said. “Consumers must have their voices heard.”
“She appreciates that the Insurance Department has moved forward with the process for adjudicatory hearings as outlined in law in order to ensure that all parties are treated fairly,” wrote William Hinkle in an email.
