CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Two weeks before enrollment opens, the only company selling health insurance plans through the new Affordable Care Act markets in New Hampshire has released broad examples aimed at giving consumers a sense of what their premiums might be.

|

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire released the examples late in the day after saying last week it would give specifics of its 11 plans by Tuesday.

|

Anthem has been criticized for creating a smaller provider network for its individual plans but company officials say that was the only way to keep premiums affordable. The new network includes 16 of the state's 26 acute-care hospitals.

Company officials are scheduled to discuss the network with state senators on Wednesday.
