New Site of Service Option in North Country

HealthBuzzNorth Country residents covered by the State Employee Health Benefit may have a new site of service option for lab services.

If your primary care provider is connected to Ammonoosuc Community Health Services (ACHS), your lab work will now be sent to site of service provider Quest Labs. Because the lab work is now being performed by a site of service provider, that lab work is no longer subject to the deductible. The one major caveat here is that this is not a walk-in service — your primary care provider must be connected with ACHS.

ACHS has locations in Littleton, Franconia, Warren, Whitefield and Woodsville. You can read more about them at You can read more about the site of service benefit at
