New Hampshire Health Protection Program (NHHPP)


If you're on our fee scale 1 or 2, you may qualify for free coverage through New Hampshire's new expanded Medicaid program.

In August of 2014 New Hampshire began offering medical coverage to a much wider range of low-income adults through the Medicaid program. This program made the affordable coverage offered by the Affordable Care Act available to all New Hampshire residents. 

Now, virtually all of our patients should qualify for affordable coverage either through subsidized insurance purchased through the Marketplace or through NHHPP, depending on your income.

Will I qualify?

Most patients on sliding fee scale level 1, and many on level 2, will qualify.

 

You will likely qualify if you are 19 through 64 years old and your income is below the following levels:

Household Size

Monthly household income

Yearly household income

1

$1,342

$16,105

2

$1,809

$21,707

3

$2,276

$27,310

4

$2,743

$32,913

5

$3,210

$38,516

 

How much will it cost?

For people making more than the federal poverty level, there will be co-payments of up to $8. Otherwise, both the coverage and covered medical care are completely free.

How do I enroll?

  • Online at nheasy.nh.gov
  • Submit a paper application or you can pick up a copy at the DHHS District Office at 73 Hobbs Street in Conway Village or at our front desk, or print it out here
  • In person at the health center, call 447-8900 and press 1 to schedule an appointment

How can I get my questions answered?

What if I don't qualify?

Make an appointment with a Navigator to figure out what your options are, by calling 447-8900. Some possible options are:

  • Appeal the decision
  • Apply for health coverage through the Marketplace instead at www.healthcare.gov. If open enrollment is over, you may qualify for a special enrollment period, especially if you have just been denied for NHHPP coverage. Find out more about the Marketplace here.
  • If all else fails, you will always be able to use our sliding fee scale and access other financial help offered at the health center. Our mission is to get you the health care you need, regardless of ability to pay.
