Qualified patients will receive a letter of approval within 30 days of application and a NH Health Access Network card that can be used at all participating health providers in New Hampshire. Please note that financial assistance approval is valid for six months, or 12 months for those who are Medicare eligible. A new application will have to be submitted after that time.

Patients who do not qualify for NH Health Access Network will also be notified in writing within 30 days of application, but may be eligible for Speare Memorial Hospital’s Community Care Program. This program is a financial aid assistance program valid only at Speare Memorial Hospital.
