New Hampshire Healthy Kids
New Hampshire Healthy Kids (NHHK) provides New Hampshire residents access to free or reduced fee health insurance coverage to uninsured children under the age of 19 whose family income who meet specific requirements.
To qualify for New Hampshire Healthy Kids, a child must be a resident of New Hampshire, a U.S. Citizen, a Refugee, an Asylee, or a Permanent resident who has been in the U.S. for five years or longer. Family income will determine which category of coverage the child will be enrolled in, but family income may not exceed 400% of the federal poverty level.
Depending upon what income bracket your child falls into, a child may be required to have been uninsured for six consecutive months or meet certain good cause waivers. The waiting period for the Buy-In option is reduced to 3 months.

Check EBT Card Balance
States have their methods to log in and check your ETB balance online. We provide that information on our state pages.
Apply for EBT Card
Most states allow online applications for EBT Cards through the application for Food Stamps (SNAP Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or cash benefits through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). We provided this local office contact for those who want to apply for their EBT in person at this office. After applying for your benefits you will most likely need to come in for an interview at this or another local social service office.
