If you are at risk of losing or cannot use your private health insurance because you have a high-risk illness and cannot pay your premiums, you may qualify to have them paid for under the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program.
To be eligible for HIPP, you must:
- Be eligible for Medicaid
- Have private health insurance through an employer
NC Medicaid will consider paying the premium for a family coverage policy if it is cost-effective and the only way the recipient can be covered.
