Don't forget to renew your HIP Membership.
By law, all HIP members must have their eligibility renewed every 12 months. This annual process is used by the state to determine if members remain eligible for HIP for another year of coverage. Members who lose eligibility due to failure to comply with the redetermination process will be required to wait six months to reenroll in HIP coverage. Some members are exempt from the lockout. This includes members who are medically frail, living in a domestic violence shelter, or have an income less than 100% of the federal poverty level. Other exemptions may apply. Learn about the annual eligibility review process by visiting the HIP Redetermination Process page on the State of Indiana's website.
The redetermination period is also one of the periods when a HIP Basic member can move to HIP Plus.
Members are no longer able to change health plans (MHS, Caresource, MDWise, or Anthem) during their redetermination. Members wanting to select a different health plan for the next calendar year can do so from November 1 through December 15. Information will be sent to active HIP members with instructions on how to change health plans during this timeframe. Plan changes requested between November 1 and December 15 will be effective January 1.
