Does anyone have any experience with HIPP? They help pay your health insurance premiums you have with insurance you get from your employer if you or a dependent has Medicaid.. I am planning on applying for dh soon because he's got a hair up his butt and wants health insurance now. (Hasn't cared the last 12 years, but OK.) I was just wondering if anyone else has ever dealt with them before.

It's a program, I think all states have it. If an employee can get health insurance through work and has Medicaid, or has a dependent with Medicaid (in some states, CHIP also) then HIPP can help pay the premiums on the health insurance obtained through work if you qualify.

So, we should be able to get help with my husband's health insurance premiums because I have Medicaid (and the baby will after it is born).

The website for more info and to apply is different for each state. I have a list; if you want to know what yours is just tell me what state you live in and I'll let you know.

I checked the list - 38 states have HIPP, so not all of them.

I just called them because I was a little unsure about the specifics. It looks like the person on Medicaid has to also be covered by the employer's insurance. The whole point is to try to reduce Medicaid's expenses. So, my husband and I would have to get insurance for BOTH of us, and then if approved, it would cover the premiums for both of us.

I haven't hear of that, but thats a great idea. I wished they had that here, I had to take the kids off our insurance in order for them to get medicaid, all I wanted was help with the co-pay and deductible...could have saved themselves a lot of money.

I've never heard of it, either. Sounds like a good program.

Thank you for the info, Sarah!!

Dh won't qualify for ins until the end of Nov but we've been worried about how we would pay the premiums when he does.
