The Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) program is a South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SDHHS) cost containment initiative, which maintains premium payments for eligible Medicaid beneficiaries who retain their private health insurance. Through this initiative, eligible Medicaid beneficiaries who satisfy HIPP program requirements may qualify for monthly reimbursements for health insurance premiums that they have paid for themselves and/or their eligible dependents.
