Coverage During Conditional Eligibility
From Covering Kids & Families of Indiana Newsletter
A recent Family and Social Services Administration update clarified coverage when a HIP member transfers from another Indiana Health Coverage Program (IHCP). “IHCP members transitioning into HIP from another IHCP program (for example, from Presumptive Eligibility or Package C – Children’s Health Insurance Plan) remain covered under their previous plan, with no gap in coverage, during the HIP conditional eligibility period.”
HIP accepted members in the initial 60-day payment period and who have not yet made Fast Track payment or first POWER Account contribution are referred to as conditionally eligible.
