Healthcare Coverage - Get Covered, Stay Covered
Healthcare coverage can be easy to ignore - until you need it. “Hoosiers covered by the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise, Medicaid and other Indiana health insurance programs must pay close attention to requests and requirements. “Missing one notice can result in gaps or loss of coverage.” states Abby Boyd, Navigator Supervisor of Pace Community Action Agency. “Healthcare coverage – insurance - can be confusing. We want Hoosiers to know that help is available.” Pace Community Action Agency, Inc and Covering Kids & Families wants Hoosiers to know:
· If you do not have healthcare coverage or have questions about keeping your coverage, free unbiased help is available.
· To keep your healthcare coverage, it is critical to respond to any requests for information (letters, postcards, etc.) and to follow plan requirements (Power Account payments, Gateway to Work reporting, change in income, change in address, etc.). Not responding by deadlines could result in gaps or loss of coverage.
· November 1 - December 15, 2018 Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) members can change their 2019 health plan regardless of when they enrolled or the date of their recertification.
· November 1 – December 15, 2018 is Marketplace Open Enrollment with coverage starting January 1, 2019. Consumers can enroll, or they can change plans.
