It’s been nearly six months since HIP 2.0 was approved, and the state has enrolled nearly 300,000 Hoosiers in the health insurance program. More than a dozen health care advocacy groups and insurers sang the praises of the program at a public forum Thursday.
As of July 1st, a little more than 289,000 residents have signed up for health care coverage through HIP 2.0. 186 thousand of them never had health insurance before. And 70 percent of enrollees are using HIP Plus, which requires contributions to a health savings account.
