Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.H., is not one of ‘our’ hospitals. Rochester, is neither ‘here nor there’, as the expression goes, when it comes to us needing a hospital. Huggins, in Wolfeboro, N.H., is the closest, though, alas, it leaves much to be desired in the ’emergency care’ area. But, we do use them — mainly for the kids. For anything more serious I insist on Concord or even LRGH. Never used, never have even been to Frisbie. We do know a doctor that works there — but going to Rochester for a hospital is not in our ‘lexicon’ of thinking. Maybe I should reexamine that.
That Frisbie was not covered by Obamacare [i.e., ACA] Anthem plan for 2014 was BIG news. I even read, in the paper, yesterday, that there was a lawsuit challenge to that which got turned down. That is why I revisited this ‘NH Department of Insurance’ presentation again because I had vaguely remembered seeing Frisbie in there. Yes, Frisbie is covered by four of the five 2015 NH healthcare carriers — but NOT by Anthem-Pathway X. Guess Anthem doesn’t like their charge structure. Fair enough.
Obamacare [i.e., ACA] based healthcare plans are far from fair, equitable or sometimes even competitive. I kind of think I would have got better coverage for roughly the same price IF I had approached Delta Dental independently OUTSIDE of bloody healthcare.gov.
But this was just a heads up about Frisbie, because it is local, and because local people are concerned about whether it is covered. Check out the presentation.
