Members should inform IHP of any address changes during their enrollment. Failure to provide the IHP with address changes could prevent a member from receiving their renewal notice.

The IHP will review the paperwork and make sure the member still meets eligibility requirements to participate. If a member qualifies for the plan, their coverage will be renewed.

To be Eligible for IHP, applicants must be:

Exceptions: You may have Medicaid Spend-down, Plan First and Emergency Services Only (ESO) Medicaid and still be eligible for IHP.
  • Meet income guidelines - yearly household income equal to or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. For a one person household this is $37,650 per year.
