HIP 2.0 Fast Track Enrollment Should Be Available Now

According to the approved HIP 2.0 waiver, individuals eligible for HIP 2.0 can now participate in a fast track process to gain immediate enrollment into HIP Plus, effective the first date of the month in which payment is received by the State. Remember HIP Plus is a better value to patients as it covers more services and is more cost effective for patients. It also does not require copayments with ordinary services – this is a win for physician’s offices too.

Individuals simply need to enroll in HIP, select the fast track option and pay $10 in the form of a POWER Account prepayment. Details on the program are still unfolding, but to IAFP’s knowledge, the fast track process was up and running as of April 1. Your patients should call 1-877-GET-HIP-9 for details.
