November 14, 2019
145 Hollis Street, Manchester, NH 03101

“As a federally-qualified health center, Amoskeag Health and our patients have seen first-hand the importance and very positive impact of the Affordable Care Act and how it has impacted our state,” said Kris McCracken, CEO and President of Amoskeag Health. “Before the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, approximately 40 percent of our patients were uninsured and as a result, they had no means to access health insurance or access services. Since this implementation, that rate has dropped by half- which is amazing.”
Open Enrollment is happening now until December 15, 2019. For more information about health insurance plans available, visit healthcare.gov.
