CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A legislative committee involved in implementing President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law in New Hampshire is expected to get more details from insurance officials.

Because the previous Legislature passed a law prohibiting the state from creating its own insurance marketplace, New Hampshire is partnering with the federal government to manage the plans offered through the marketplace and to assist consumers with figuring out their options.

The particulars of the state’s role have yet to be decided, and some Republican members of the Health Reform Oversight Committee have insisted on a detailed, written agreement on how the consumer assistance partnership would work. They are expected to hear those details Tuesday.
