USING OUR SERVICES

When you're sick

If you have a medical emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. This guide can help you figure out whether you should get emergency care.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, call 988. Or to be connected directly to NH mental health crisis services, dial (833) 710-6477.

During business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30 am - 4 pm):

  • If your health concern is NOT an emergency, call us at (603) 447-8900.
  • Our nurse will call you back within an hour to discuss your concern.  They will work with you to figure out how urgent it is and how best to proceed.

After hours and on weekends:

  • Call our main number at (603) 447-8900 and you will be directed to our on-call nursing service. They will give you instructions about what to do, and will notify us so that we can follow up with you when we open.
  • Our nurse will call you the next business day and will arrange for a follow-up appointment if you need one.

Preparing for your visit

  • Expect a text with a demographics update form to fill out, if it’s the first time you’ve been in this year.
  • Call us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule, if possible.
  • Screen yourself for COVID-19 symptoms before you come in.
  • If you have been experiencing ANY of these symptoms, please call us before coming in so a member of our medical team can advise on how to proceed.
  • We aren't currently requiring masks at our facility, but you are welcome to wear one. We may require masks if the hospital admission level in Carroll County rises. Staff are happy to wear masks by request, please don’t hesitate to ask. If you have any respiratory symptoms, you must wear a mask.
  • Make sure you bring your insurance card, medications, and a list of health concerns you'd like to discuss.
  • Come 15 minutes early to fill out forms before your appointment.

Read our before your visit page to learn more about what to expect from a visit.

Using the portal

We encourage patients to sign up for the portal to make it easier for you to access information and communicate with us.

Here's how:

Here are some things you can use the portal for:

  • Send a message to your provider. Click on “Messages” and “+ SEND MSG” to open a new note. Select your provider and type up your update or question. Someone on their team will get back to you within 48 business hours.
  • See your health information. Click on “Health,” “My Records,” and “Request Health Record.” After a few seconds, a health record with the current date and time will show up. Click “view information” to see your whole record.
  • Send your health record. Do the above, but instead of clicking “view information” click “send information.” Enter the email address of the person or practice you’re sending your record to. The information will be sent as an attached html document that can be viewed in an internet browser.
  • View medications you’ve been prescribed. Click on “Health” and “My Medications.” You’ll see a list of all the medications you’ve ever been prescribed through us, with the prescriber, dates, and directions.
  • Request prescription refills. Click on “Health” and “My Medications.” Check the box next to any prescriptions you need refilled, then click “Request Refills.”  You'll either hear from us or the prescription will be at the pharmacy waiting for pickup within 3 business days.  Refill requests that need provider approval may take up to 5 business days.

Cost of services

Estimating medical costs can be hard because there are so many variables. When you go into your appointment with a health problem, the amount you're billed for that visit will depend on the decisions you and your provider agree upon for your care. Your out-of-pocket cost can vary widely depending on your health coverage type and plan.

That said, cost transparency is very important to us as an organization. It gives patients the ability to plan for upcoming medical costs, and it improves the health system overall if every organization can be clear about what they charge.

We don’t want the listed prices to make anyone hesitant to seek care. Few patients pay all or even most of this cost. Your cost will depend on your health insurance and/or Sliding Fee Discount Schedule level:

  • Patients with Medicaid don’t pay anything for covered services.
  • If you have private insurance, your cost will depend on your coverage and the rate your insurance company agrees to pay for different services. Our care coordinators can help if you’re insured but don’t know how to predict what you’ll pay, or if you can’t afford care even with insurance.
  • Patients using our Sliding Fee Discount Program will pay much less than the listed price.

Patients without health insurance will be sent a Good Faith Estimate of the cost of their visit before any scheduled appointments.  If you have health insurance and want an estimate for an upcoming visit, please call our billing office.

How to pay your bill

How to pay your bill

  • In person – pay when you check in, or stop by later to pay.
  • Online – you’ll get a text after your visit with a link to pay. If you lose this text, call us and we can resend it.
  • Mail us your payment – you’ll get a bill in the mail after your visit if you haven’t already paid. You can mail a check or credit card payment to us at 298 White Mountain Highway, Conway, NH 03818.
  • Over the phone – call us and we can take a payment over the phone

What if you can't pay your bill?

We exist to make sure that everyone can access healthcare regardless of their ability to pay. Here are some options if you get a bill from us that you can’t afford to pay:

  • Apply for our Sliding Fee Discount Program. We can apply your sliding fee scale level to an existing balance retroactively for up to four months. You can also use the SFDP in combination with health insurance to reduce the cost of your copay and other out-of-pocket costs.
  • Call us and/or your insurance company if you get a bill for a service you thought would be covered. Mistakes happen, and it’s worth looking into. We can help make sure you’re being charged correctly.
  • Meet with a care coordinator to talk about an individual situation. They can connect you with other programs and funds that might be able to help, or in some cases can waive fees.
  • Set up a payment plan. Talk to our billing staff to set this up.

Please be in touch if you need extra assistance and explain your situation. We will do all we can to help as long as you stay in contact with us and stay current with the payment plan you’ve set up.

If you don’t make any payments for more than 120 days and you haven’t been in contact with us about it, we may choose to place your account with a collections agent. Please call our billing department if this happens to you. We can help you get back on track.

Medical records

If you need your medical record sent somewhere, you can do this most easily on the portal:

  • Sign in, click on “Health,” “My Records,” and “Request Health Record.”
  • After a few seconds, a health record with the current date and time will show up.
  • Click “Send Information.”
  • Write the email address of the person or practice you’re sending your record to.
  • The information will be sent as an attached html document that can be viewed in an internet browser.
  • This will only include the record of medical care you’ve received here. It won’t include records from other places you’ve gotten care, even if those records have been sent to us.

If you need your complete record, or don’t use the portal, please contact Medical Records Assistant Lisa Bates at lbates@whitemountainhealth.org or (603) 447-8900 to request your full record.
