Medicaid: LaHIPP

Health and Hospitals, Bureau of Health Services Financing (MEDICAID)

Louisiana Health Insurance Premium Payment (LaHIPP) is a part of Louisiana Medicaid that may pay some or all of the health insurance premiums for an employee and his/her family if the employee has insurance available through his/her job and someone in the family receives health coverage through Medicaid.  The family member(s) getting Medicaid will also be able to have health insurance.

Am I Eligible?

LaHIPP does a review of what the insurance costs and what it covers, then decides if it is more cost effective for Louisiana Medicaid to pay the health insurance premiums for the person who is working and the family member who receives Medicaid. Cost-effective means that it costs less for Louisiana Medicaid to pay for the health insurance premium than it does to pay for the medical expenses of the person who gets Medicaid.
