Health Coverage Assistance – Covering Kids and Families
Brightpoint’s Covering Kids and Families program has licensed Indiana Navigators that provide FREE help to Hoosier families to enroll in and understand state and federal health insurance programs such as Medicaid, Hoosier Healthwise, Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women, the Healthy Indiana Plan and the Health Insurance Marketplace. Brightpoint Navigators assist consumers at all points in the enrollment process and will work with consumers to maintain their coverage once approved.

Hoosier Healthwise (HHW)
HHW is Indiana’s health-care program for children age 0-18. HHW offers medical, dental, and vision coverage at little or no cost.
Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP)
HIP is Indiana’s health-care program for uninsured adult Hoosiers. HIP offers pregnancy, medical, dental, and vision coverage for a minimal, monthly contribution based on your income and family size.
Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women (PEPW)
PEPW allows pregnant women to receive temporary coverage for prenatal care services only while their eligibility is being determined for other Indiana coverage.
Health Insurance Marketplace
The Health Insurance Marketplace is where individuals and small businesses not eligible for Indiana’s plans can shop for and buy private health insurance at reduced costs based on income and family size. Most applicants qualify for premium tax credits that lower the costs of coverage. All plans cover essential health benefits, pre-existing conditions, and preventative care.
