HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUM PROGRAM (HIPP)
The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) administers two Medicaid programs that may reimburse part or a participant’s entire share of the employer sponsored group health insurance premiums. These programs are known as the Health Insurance Premium Program (HIPP) and HIPP for Kids. All applications are first evaluated for HIPP for Kids (HFK’s) and then HIPP, if applicants are not eligible for the HFK’s program. This insures that applicant’s circumstances are fully reviewed and every opportunity for eligibility is granted.
