National Cuddle Up Day is observed annually on January 6. January has some of the coldest days of the year, but you may not notice if you’re cuddling! Cuddling is healthy! It releases oxytocin which gives us warm, fuzzy feelings and reduces pain. So when the cold has made those muscles and joints ache, cuddling can help reduce those aches and pains. Oxytocin also helps reduce heart disease, reduces blood pressure, stress and anxiety. If you don’t have someone to cuddle up with, schedule a massage--it can provide the same benefits.

Updated 10/16: This has been a good company for us and I'm sure it will continue to be a good company. But... With new enrollment all plan prices are increasing. For us, with subsidy, not by that much, but MCHO which has been lowest in price, will now be the high priced provider considering feature by feature. This time around, after two years with them, the difference is dramatic enough that I will have to change to another provider. Even Harvard Pilgrim, which has been the high priced one is less. -------------------- Original post Had them for a year now. Good coverage, good service, good price (as far as insurance can be)

I've used this company for 3 years! They've provided me with excellence customer service and they are available whenever I needed advice. I would go no where else for my insurance needs.

Beware of this company, cancelled service with them in December but they deducted premium in January of $500+ and now its proving impossible to get the money back. The rep on the phone said "a lot of people had the same thing happen".

I have had nothing but a positive experience with C.H.O. Admittedly, some of the customer service people answering the phone seem new. I hang up and call again to talk to a different person.

I've had an insurance plan through this company for the past year and am very satisfied with them. In fact, I have no complaints at all. They've covered everything they said they would (and more), have been helpful on the phone, and everything I needed has been done on a timely basis. My one big complaint is that they're leaving the NH market next year, so I won't be able to stay wth them, which is very disappointing.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Thank you for your review. It was a hard decision to remove ourselves from the NH market. However, we have left our Provider Network in place to ease our transition back to NH in the future.

UPDATED: I originally gave these guys a good review (below) but have since become very frustrated with them. The people we get on the phone seem to be clueless now. All we get is a standard "I don't know, the provider must have coded it wrong. Goodbye!" They wanted to be better than the big insurance companies, but they have become just as difficult to deal with. It's a shame. Original review: I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews. I have called them several times over the past 18 months and I have never waited on hold, always talked to pleasant people, and all but one was able to answer my questions fully (the one who couldn't answer my questions found the answers and called me back.) Overall the only thing that hasn't been excellent is their notices, which are difficult to decipher (just like every other insurance company I've ever been with, and I've been with them all over the years.) Compared to other companies these guys are amazing. They actually care what members think and try to actually provide good service which is very rare. You guys rock.

They usually do a pretty good job, yet somehow, paying my premium in next to impossible. The online payment system has never worked for me, in the three plus years I've had coverage. On top of that, they don't take credit cards. All I want is a recurring payment I don't have to think about, and they won't even do that over the phone.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Hi, Clayton. Thank you for your comments and the opportunity to respond. Yes, our online payment system has had periods of time when hasn't worked for some Members. We, and our banking contractor, must continually update our systems as technology changes. Sometimes there are tweaks necessary on our end, and sometimes, you must simply clear your Internet cache and cookies so that you are accessing the current version. Please always try this first. If you continue to experience problems, we need to know, along with some details such as what browser you are using (Chrome, Explorer, Firefox, Safari). You can set up recurring payments in your Member Portal and Members Services will walk you through the process, but cannot do it for you. Please give them a call at 855-624-6463.

Lied about coverage. Said became part of the orphan group and all coverage was lost repeatedly. Took payment for 2 months and covered nothing. Nancy from there is an absolute idiot and lies to you just to get you to stop calling her. Finally her answer was I don't know what to do. Comforting huh. Screwed up 1095a so bad it took 4 months to get it corrected. Go elsewhere,we did and we love it. Total bunch of idiots in it for the money. Currently sitting on bills we paid insurance coverage for that were kicked back. That's OK we have bank statements showing they took payment then never covered anything. If you want a great big screw around and to always be on the phone trying to fix things then this is the place for you. If not, move on.
