The insurance program is able to buy insurance policies for clients who qualify and meet eligibility requirements. If you qualify, Program HH will make the premium payments for you. Program HH does not pay for dental insurance or life insurance policies.
Program HH offers the insurance premium payment program to people who have no other option to receive health care benefits either through their employer or through another Minnesota Health Care Program like MinnesotaCare or Medical Assistance.
If you have access to insurance through your employer, Program HH requires that you enroll in that coverage. If you pay over 50 percent over the premium cost, Program HH will help you by paying your portion of the premium payment. If you pay less than 50 percent of the total premium cost, the payments are your responsibility.
In either case, Program HH will help you by paying any out of pocket medication co-pays for HH formulary drugs.
Program HH will help you with your deductible as long as it is for the purchase of medication on the Program HH formulary. Most deductibles have an annual renewal date. Filling your prescriptions at the beginning of your deductible period would allow Program HH to cover that expense.
If you lose your job and employer-sponsored insurance, Program HH will help you by paying premiums for an insurance plan purchased through MNsure. If you have citizenship issues and cannot use MNsure, Program HH will help you get insurance through the open market.
