APD Financial Assistance Programs

The program helps insured and uninsured patients whose household incomes are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines with 100% APD financial assistance.  Please click here to learn more about our Financial Assistance Policy. There is a sliding scale for those who qualify for up to 300% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. Please review this chart for more information.

To get an application, visit the Patient Access Department at APD, or call (603) 443-9579. APD financial assistance guidelines are updated each year to reflect changes in the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

APD Discount and Payment Plan Programs

Our payment plans help patients who realize they cannot pay before their treatment or after receiving their first statement. The payment calendar will be based on the amount of money that is due. We may ask for a “good faith” payment on arrangements that will last more than six months. If you are unable to make full payment, please call the telephone number on your patient statement.

  • APD offers uninsured patients an automatic 35% discount, which will be reflected on your first patient statement.
  • A 10% prompt-pay discount will be offered on coinsurance and deductible balances if paid in full within 30 days of receiving your first patient statement.

Price Estimates for Services at APD

You may ask for a price estimate at any time for all services provided at APD. 

  • The estimate can help you in planning payment arrangements.
  • You may be billed separately for professional services provided by physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, radiologists or anesthesia professionals not employed by APD. These charges will not be included in estimates provided by the hospital, so you should also ask these providers for their estimates if you need them. The Patient Access team can help you if you aren’t sure which providers you need to get an estimate for.

New Hampshire Health Access Network

The New Hampshire Health Access Network is a voluntary effort by health care providers to improve access to health care for low-income children and adults statewide. NHHAN is not an insurance program. It is a discount program based on the applicant household's income and assets. The Network helps low-income people in New Hampshire who do not have health insurance or do not have enough money to pay for hospital care, doctor visits or other medical care.
