The Arkansas Health Insurance Premium Payment Program

The Arkansas Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program is sponsored by Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Services. HIPP is designed to save money for Medicaid clients with high healthcare costs by reimbursing all or a portion of the cost of their health insurance provided by an employer or COBRA and by eliminating some of their out-of-pocket medical expenses. In some cases, clients may qualify to receive reimbursement for the premium cost of a family health insurance policy.

HIPP membership is completely free for those who qualify and does not affect eligibility for Medicaid.

Not currently insured through your job? When you qualify for HIPP, federal law makes it possible for you to enroll in employer-sponsored health insurance at any time of the year.

Applying for Arkansas HIPP is easy! Apply to HIPP.
