Hospitals in New Hampshire work hard to make quality health care available, affordable, and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. They offer many financial assistance and referral programs to ensure that cost will not be a barrier to anyone in our community getting the health care services they need.  If payment of your health care expenses could create a financial hardship for you, your community hospital will work with you to apply for financial assistance, even if you do not feel you qualify for financial assistance. Information you provide is confidential.

As part of the financial counseling application process, the hospital will assess your potential eligibility for health insurance coverage through federal or state programs such as New Hampshire Medicaid. If it is determined that you may be eligible for one of these programs, the hospital will assist you in the application process. You will be required to supply the financial or medical documentation that is necessary to secure such insurance coverage.

  • Family income, in relation to federal poverty guidelines
  • Assets (e.g. home, bank account, and stocks)
