The Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) is a health insurance program for uninsured adult Hoosiers ages 19-64. The program is sponsored by the State of Indiana and requires sliding-scale monthly contributions from enrollees. (Participants pay between 2% and 5% of their gross family income; the exact amount depends upon income level and family size). Enrolled members choose a primary care physician for wellness care. Diagnostic, medical, hospital, mental health, and prescription services are also covered by the HIP plan. To learn more about the plan visit the web pages listed above, available at the State's HIP Website.

To be eligible for the Healthy Indiana Plan, an individual must meet income guidelines; must not have access to employer-sponsored health insurance coverage; and must have been uninsured for at least six months prior to enrolling in HIP. Applicants in a family of four, for example: would be eligible for HIP if the family's income does not exceed $44,100 a year; the maximum income level for a family of two is $29,140. Eligibility Guidelines are covered in detail at the State's HIP web pages by clicking on the link provided above.

An individual cannot be excluded from the Healthy Indiana Plan based on their medical condition. If an applicant meets HIP eligibility criteria, they will not be denied coverage because of pre-existing and/or serious medical conditions, including chronic diseases such as cancer and HIV/AIDS. The HIP application includes a brief medical questionnaire to identify applicants with serious health conditions, in order to facilitate placement and immediate medical coverage in the Enhanced Services Plan.
