HEALTH OVERHAUL-NETWORKS

CONCORD, N.H. - A group working to revise how New Hampshire evaluates health care provider networks is holding another informal session to discuss the issue. The state’s network adequacy standards have been in the spotlight since last year, when the Insurance Department approved Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s narrow network for health plans sold through the Affordable Care Act. More companies are now selling plans, easing some concerns, but officials have said the rules were ripe for revision given how much health care has changed since they were enacted in 2001.

WINTRY WEATHER

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - A slow-moving storm churned through the Northeast early Tuesday, bringing heavy rains and strong wind to coastal areas, at least half a foot of heavy, wet snow inland and a wintry mix to the New England states. The storm made for a slippery Tuesday morning commute in parts of Massachusetts, where state police responded to numerous crashes and spinouts caused by icy roads, some involving their own cruisers. New Hampshire awoke to light snow, freezing rain and sleet. By Erika Niedowski. SENT: 390 words, photos.
