Enroll in Healthy Indiana Plan

Hoosiers enrolled in Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) can choose CareSource for health care coverage. 

The Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) is a health-insurance program for low income Hoosiers ages 19 to 64, with benefits that include hospital care, mental and behavioral health services, substance abuse treatment, maternity care, doctor visits and prescriptions.

HIP members pay an affordable monthly fee called a POWER Account Contribution (PAC)*, which is based on income.  HIP Plus gives members the best value since there are no added out-of-pocket costs unless you visit the emergency room for a non-emergency. Plus, CareSource offers incentives that reward members for taking steps to improve their health.

At CareSource, we understand there is more to health and well-being than just great health care. That’s why we provide our members with extra help and benefits.

Questions about the benefits CareSource provides HIP members? Give us a call at 1-800-607-2829 (TTY:1-800-743-3333). Our hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 8:00pm. We’re happy to help!

*If HIP Members do not make their PAC, their benefits could be transitioned to HIP Basic. This means members will have out of pocket costs (copays) for doctor visits and prescriptions.  If members earn over 138% of the poverty level and do not make their PAC, they could lose their benefits altogether.
