HIP Has Been Expanded
HIP 2.0 program overview
The NEW Healthy Indiana Plan (or “HIP 2.0”) is a health insurance program from the State of Indiana that pays for medical expenses and provides incentives for members to be more health conscious. HIP 2.0 provides coverage for qualified low-income Hoosiers who are interested in participating in a low-cost, consumer-driven health care program.
Indiana residents ages 19-64 with incomes of up to $16,443 annually for an individual, $22,251 for a couple or $33,868 for a family of four are generally eligible to participate in HIP 2.0. (*Based on the 2015 Federal Poverty Level.)
There are two distinct levels of coverage in HIP 2.0: HIP Plus and HIP Basic. Each covers medical expenses such as doctor visits, hospital care, therapies, medications, prescriptions and medical equipment. HIP Plus offers members the best value and, unlike HIP Basic, also covers vision and dental care, and even bariatric surgery.
