The Alaska Health Insurance Premium Payment Program

The Alaska Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program is sponsored by Alaska’s Department of Health. HIPP is designed to help Medicaid recipients with costs associated with health insurance that includes comprehensive medical coverage provided by an employer or COBRA. HIPP membership is completely free for those who qualify and does not affect eligibility for Medicaid.

Alaska HIPP is administered by Medicaid’s contractor, HMS — a Gainwell Technologies company.

Not currently insured through a job? By qualifying for HIPP, federal law makes it possible for individuals to enroll in employer-sponsored health insurance at any time of the year.
