Who Is Covered?
HIP is for uninsured Hoosier adults between the ages of 19-64. Parents or caretaker relatives of children in the Hoosier Healthwise program are likely candidates for HIP.
1. Individuals must earn less than 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL). A single adult earning less than $20,000, or families of four earning less than $40,000 likely meet the basic financial requirements.
2. Individuals must not have access to employer sponsored health insurance coverage.
3. Individuals must be uinsured for the previous six months.
The Plan provides:
• A POWER Account valued at $1,100 per adult to pay for medical costs. Contributions to the account are made by the State and each participant (based on ability to pay). No participant will pay more than 5% of his/her gross family income on the plan.
• A basic commercial benefits package once annual medical costs exceed $1,100.
• Coverage for preventive services up to $500 a year at no cost to participants.
Why a POWER Account?
• POWER Accounts give participants a financial incentive to adopt healthy behaviors that keep them out of the doctor's office. When they do seek health care, plan participants will seek price transparency so they can make value conscious decisions.
