Maine Community Health Options will start offering plans in New Hampshire's Rockingham, Strafford, Carroll and Coos counties, and plans to expand its reach later in the year.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ New Hampshire residents shopping for health insurance under the federal health care overhaul law will have a choice among three companies and two cooperatives next year.

The state insurance department said Monday it has licensed Assurant Health and Maine Community Health Options to offer coverage through New Hampshire's federally-operated marketplace in 2015.

The department previously announced that Harvard Pilgrim Health Care of New England and Minuteman Health, a Massachusetts-based cooperative, would offer plans next year, along with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire, which was the only company that offered plans during the health law's first year.

The Maine co-op will start by offering plans in Rockingham, Strafford, Carroll and Coos counties but plans to expand its reach later in the year.
