Financial Assistance Button

Cheshire Medical Center provides many financial aid, assistance and referral programs to ensure that cost will not be a barrier to anyone in our community getting the health care services they need. If payment of your health care expenses could create a financial hardship for you, our staff will work with you to apply for financial assistance. Information you provide is confidential and is only reviewed by staff processing your application.

Even if you do not feel you qualify for financial assistance, please call us to discuss your individual situation. There are many factors taken into consideration when determining eligibility. We also may be able to connect you with other resources for which you may qualify.

As part of the financial aid counseling application process, we will assess your potential eligibility for health insurance coverage through federal or state programs such as New Hampshire Medicaid. If it is determined that you may be eligible for one of these programs, the hospital will assist you in the application process. You will be required to supply the financial or medical documentation that is necessary to secure such insurance coverage.
