Here we have put together a brief list of resources that might help you overcome some of the barriers to your recovery.

Lamprey Health Care Health Insurance Counseling
The Affordable Care Act made a change that required insurance plans to cover many of the healthcare related expenses of recovery. As a result private insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare cover many of these expenses. However, the insurance marketplace can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Lamprey Health Care out of Nashua NH provides counseling services to help solve just this problem. “Trained navigators and certified application counselors are available to provide education about the Marketplace, help understand and evaluate Qualified Health Plans, apply for federal tax subsidies and assist with the enrollment process.”
If you need assistance purchasing an insurance plan or understanding your existing insurance call Lamprey Health Care at (603)292-7730 and ask to speak with a Certified Application Counselor.
