NH Health Access Network

What is the New Hampshire Health Access Network? 

The New Hampshire Health Access Network is a voluntary effort by health care providers to improve access to health care for low-income children and adults statewide. NHHAN is not an insurance program. It is a discount program based on the applicant household's income and assets.

Who does the Network help? 

The Network helps low-income people in New Hampshire who do not have health insurance or do not have enough money to pay for hospital care, doctor visits or other medical care. 

How can I find out if I am eligible?

Complete the application found on this website.  Be sure to include the documents listed on the cover letter.  Mail the completed application and required documents to the Financial Assistance Department at the hospital of your choice.  If you already have a primary care provider, mail the application to the hospital with which your primary care provider is affiliated.

Where can I use my NHHAN card?

All of the participating providers offer some form of financial assistance, either the NHHAN card or their own in house program. Contact the finanical assistance department at each site to apply.


How can I enroll for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act?

The Foundation for Healthy Communities was one of six agencies chosen by the NH Health Plan to help consumers navigate through the many health insurance options available under the Affordable Care Act through the Marketplace Assistance Program. The Foundation's assisters will be visiting hospitals and health clinics to help people with enrollment, and will also partner with other assisters throughout the state. Most recently, they have been joining forces with the New Hampshire State Employees Association with sign-ups at local community colleges.
