? SeaCare has Closed



We regret to inform you that SeaCare Health Services closed on November 15th 2013. This was a very difficult decision for the agency's board to make; however, this has been prompted by the current financial climate for non-profits. Also, the health care world has become more complicated and unsettled and SeaCare's ability to maintain services has become more challenging.

For closing business please write to:
SeaCare
PO Box 309
Exeter, NH 03833

Starting on October 1, 2013, individuals may apply for insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace, www.healthcare.gov. Please review our list of frequently asked questions about this new program; however, we encourage you to contact SeaCare at 772-8119 if you have additional questions. Click here for a list of local Navigators and Certified Application Counselors who will be able to guide you through the process of enrolling in health insurance plans through the Marketplace, and here for other community resources.


We are very sorry to be closing after 20 years, but we would like to thank the hundreds of people who made it possible for us to distribute more than $30 million in medical care and products to thousands of our neighbors. We thank you for the opportunity to serve you. Yours sincerely,

Kathy Crompton,
Executive Director

Health Insurance Marketplace FAQs

Please read below for Frequently Asked Questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace

Q: What is Obamacare/The Affordable Care Act?

A: Obamacare is the unofficial name for The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This health care reform has created the Marketplace where Americans can purchase federally regulated and subsidized health insurance.

Q: What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

A: The Marketplace is a web site which shows your options for medical insurance. With one application you can compare the available health plans, and explore any free or low-cost programs for which you may qualify.

Q: What is a Navigator?

A: If you need help with your application, a Navigator is the person who will assist you. They will review your coverage options and see if you qualify for a premium tax credit, cost sharing reductions, Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program. Click here for a list of New Hampshire Patient Navigator Office Locations.

Q: What is a Certified Application Counselor?

A: A Certified Application Counselor is a person who aids the Navigators with enrollment in the Marketplace.

Q: Can I still see my doctor? *Please be aware that not all hospitals or physicians will be accepting the insurance through Obamacare.

A: If you have insurance through Obamacare you will continue with your current physician if that practice accepts the insurance.

If you don't qualify for insurance through Obamacare, you will need to apply for financial assistance through your doctor's office. If they do not offer financial assistance, you will need to enroll at your local Community Health Care facility (i.e. Lamprey, Families First).

Q: When can I enroll and when does the insurance become active?

A: Open enrollment starts October 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014. The dates of active insurance coverage are determined by your enrollment date and your first premium payment:

October 1, 2013 - December 15, 2013 enrollment with your first premium paid, insurance becomes active on January 1, 2014.

December 16, 2013 - January 31, 2014 enrollment with your first premium paid, insurance becomes active on March 13, 2014.

February 1, 2014 - March 31, 2014 enrollment with your first premium paid, insurance becomes active two months after enrollment.
