Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (HIPP) in Pennsylvania

You are eligible for Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (HIPP) if you are on Medical Assistance and you have insurance through your job. Your employer must refer you to a HIPP representative. The HIPP representative will figure out your insurance cost based on your personal information such as your income. 

If you receive Medical Assistance, you must participate in the HIPP program if your employer tells you that HIPP is less expensive than regular insurance.

Just an FYI for anyone looking to call these numbers, you will not talk to a real person. No matter how much you call you will always get the same voicemail box that tells you to leave a message and they will get back to you at their conveince. But what is their convience if you can't get answers on questions you have? How can you fill out an application if you can't get ahold of someone to send you one. You can't get one off the Internet like every where else. So how does this really work? Everyone knows there is a small window of opportunity for you to get insurance from your place of work but you will miss the window when these people are too preoccupied in their own privileged lives to give you a simple call back. Or maybe try answering the phone sometime.
