1840.010.10.05 HIPP Effect on Uninsured Status

Individuals insured simply because the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program is paying the premium will be treated as though they are uninsured. If a child in the Non-CHIP group has insurance through HIPP, and a change in income occurs that changes the child’s eligibility to one of the CHIP groups, the child continues to be eligible for MO HealthNet as though uninsured.

NOTE: Health Insurance available to children of state employees is considered affordable. See section 1840.010.15.10 Employer-Sponsored Insurance.
