The KI-HIPP Medicaid program helps eligible members of the public enrolled in the program pay for the cost of employer-sponsored insurance (ESI) premiums, which is the amount you pay to your health insurance company for coverage.
The KI-HIPP program may also provide access to a wider healthcare network by providing access to the full traditional Medicaid network. It may also allow an entire family to be on the same health insurance plan.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for KI-HIPP, you must be eligible for Medicaid and have access to employer-sponsored insurance through current or past employment (United Mine Workers, Retiree Health Plan, and COBRA). For more information, view the Eligibility video or check out the KI-HIPP 101 and KI-HIPP Member FAQ below.
