Covering New Hampshire is going to cities and towns throughout the Seacoast to help Granite Staters enroll in affordable healthcare

They will include a brief overview of the Affordable Care Act and will an opportunity to access HealthCare.gov through on-site computers with the help of a local Navigator or Marketplace Assister.
