HIV Care Program
Healthcare Insurance Continuation Program
The Health Insurance Continuation Program (HICP) assists eligible persons who are unable to pay their health insurance premiums. This special program pays a maximum monthly health insurance premium of $1100.00, which may include a spouse and children on a family health insurance plan, as well as dental and vision.
Upon the ending of the client’s COBRA coverage (including extended coverage), all enrolling sites are encouraged to verify their client’s Conversion or Individual policy eligibility, prior to submitting an application for ADAP enrollment. The HICP will pay Individual Policy premiums.
The HICP will only accept new clients for the Program who have insurance plans that include both outpatient primary care coverage and prescription coverage without a yearly cap. Premium payments will be limited to $1100.00 per month total.
Additionally, individuals are eligible for HICP if they:
- Have a diagnosis of HIV infection or AIDS
- Have a gross household income equal to or less than 300% of the Federal Poverty Level
- Have cash assets equal to or less than $4500 if single or $5500 if married
- Are not covered by or eligible for Medicaid
In order for clients to be eligible for the HICP, Case Report Forms are now required. Effective November 1, 2007, CDC HIV/AIDS case report forms must be attached to all new HICP
applications to be considered for enrollment. For more on reporting information, please click here.
Throughout Georgia, there are 25 ADAP and HICP enrollment sites located in each of the 18 health districts, along with 5 additional approved sites located in Metro Atlanta.
