The state announced that the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), which offers full health benefits including mental health and prescription coverage, will enroll up to 8,000 childless adults beginning Aug. 1.

The program, created by Gov. Mitch Daniels, first started accepting beneficiaries in 2008.

HIP is for uninsured adults ages 19 to 64. Enrollees pay only 2 to 5 percent of their gross family income. To be eligible, individuals must earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level (no more than $21,660 for singles and $44,000 for a family), must be uninsured for the previous six months and have no access to employer-sponsored health insurance.

Advise your uninsured patients to visit the in.gov HIP page or call (877) 438-4479 toll-free for more information.
