Using HIP Insurance for Addiction Recovery Services


Addiction recovery services in Indiana are what Hickory Treatment Centers work to bring to anyone in need of assistance. One of the first questions that comes to mind when an individual seeks out addiction treatment is how much time and money will be needed to complete a program.

It’s an understandable concern to have as swapping the stress of addiction for the stress of affording treatment isn’t something most people wish to do. To help combat this, the state of Indiana has implemented addiction treatment coverage through its HIP program.

What is HIP?

HIP, or the Healthy Indiana Plan, is the state’s health coverage program that can be started by eligible residents. Hoosiers who are between 19 and 64 years old and have no current disabilities can shop for HIP plans so long as they meet certain income requirements.

While the HIP began in 2008, it has undergone many different iterations over the years. The program not only acts as a healthcare option but also as a resource to educate residents on personal health and fitness. By combining quality health coverage with tools to be healthier personally, the state is truly working towards a healthier Indiana.

The program also helps unemployed or underemployed residents find jobs that can provide healthcare incentives as well. By working with established healthcare networks, HIP is able to give residents access to a large number of providers to ensure quality care is always attainable.

The most recent expansion of HIP now covers even more individuals who can use the coverage to find both mental health and addiction treatment.

How To Get Addiction Treatment With HIP

Medicaid programs through the Healthy Indiana Plan help bring coverage to nearly 1.5 million low-income residents that previously had little or no access to affordable healthcare.

Indiana’s healthcare marketplace has multiple plan options to cater to different age groups and varying degrees of existing health conditions. Part of each plan though is the inclusion of addiction and mental health coverage as part of the essential benefits.

Now, Indiana residents are able to use their HIP plans for multiple types of addiction and rehab programs at qualifying facilities including our very own Hickory Treatment Centers.
