NH hospital wants network decision documents

Boston.com / Associated Press, December 5, 2013
A New Hampshire hospital executive said Wednesday he is being denied access to information about why his facility was excluded from the Affordable Care Act's provider network for individuals, but the state insurance department said it is still sorting out what it can release. Al Felgar, president of Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, is fighting Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire's decision to exclude his hospital from its network for those purchasing individual policies. He asked the insurance department last month for a hearing on the matter and for documents Anthem submitted to the state when seeking approval for the network.
