Need help navigating HIP 2.0 or kynect? On-site help available at seven Planned Parenthood Health Centers

After Feb. 15, most people who don’t have health insurance will have to pay a fine under the Affordable Care Act. With Indiana’s new HIP 2.0, more Hoosiers than ever will qualify for coverage, or may even be eligible for some benefits at no charge.  And Kentuckians can still sign up for benefits through kynect, the state’s health insurance marketplace.

 

It can be difficult to sort out the options, plans, and application processes. Some Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) health centers house on-site, state-certified Affordable Care Act Navigators to help anyone sign up and pick a plan that’s right for them and to apply for coverage through HIP 2.0 or kynect.
