Connecting Kids to Coverage Indiana

Connecting Kids to Coverage - Indiana (CKC-IN) 

 
  

 

A program to connect children and families to health care coverage in Indiana. This effort is funded by a grant from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to the Indiana Rural Health Association.

"You are a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that we were able to connect! I can't tell you how great it is to have a parent or student tell us that they don't have insurance and be able to refer them directly to you. It's wonderful to have this resource.” 

Michael Landeck, Director of Operations - Indianapolis Metropolitan High School 

Over the next three years, 2019-2022, the goal of the CKC-IN program is to increase the number of Indiana children and families enrolled in health care coverage.  Our program will focus on enrollment in the Hoosier Healthwise and the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP).

Our CKC-IN team consists of licensed Indiana Navigators who are ready to assist with the following:

  • Education about the health insurance program you and your family may qualify for.
  • Enrollment application assistance.
  • Troubleshoot application issues.
  • Help you understand your benefits and how to use them.
  • Answer questions about coverage options, especially Hoosier Healthwise, and the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP).
  • Specialized referrals.

FREE Indiana insurance application assistance is now available over the phone and through HIPPA-compliant/secure electronic technologies.  Please email navigator@indianarha.org or schedule an appointment here:

 

 If you email navigator@indianarha.org  please specify county of residence, your availability for a phone appointment (day and time), and your area of interest: insurance enrollment, SNAP, TANF, or other.
