CONCORD — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services will hold 12 statewide information sessions about the implementation of the New Hampshire Health Protection Program (NH HPP).
With recent changes to New Hampshire law, there are new options for health insurance at little or no cost to those who qualify. The information sessions will provide important information about the program, coverage, eligibility and how to apply.
The NH Health Protection Program has two coverage options. The Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (HIPP) will help cover insurance costs for someone if they or a member of their family have access to health insurance through an employer. The Bridge Program is for those that don’t have access to health insurance through an employer, or if they do not qualify for the HIPP Program.
The NH HPP is being offered to people between 19 and 65 years old. To be eligible, a household of one would have a monthly income limit of $1,294; a household of two, $1,744 or less per month; a household of three monthly income limit of $2,194; or a household of four with a monthly imcome limit of $2,644 or less.
Anyone who thinks they may be eligible (or their family members or care givers) and human service agency coordinators who work with those who may be eligible are encouraged to attend. Others who are interested in hearing more about the NH HPP are also welcome to attend.These are informational sessions only, it is not for people to apply. All 12 sessions will cover the same information, so people need to attend only once.
