There are also Medicare programs offering assistance to help low-income people eligible for Medicare to pay for their premiums, deductibles and co-payments.
The New Hampshire Health Access Network (NHHAN) helps uninsured low-income residents receive discounts on medical services such as hospital care and doctor visits. It is not an insurance program. There is also New Hampshire Health Plan (NHHP) and New Hampshire Health Plan-Federal who offer insurance options to high-risk people who have been denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
