A New HIP Public: A Community-Engaged Project to Invest in Low-Income Hoosiers' Health and Wellness

Pamela Napier, David Craig, Luis Garcia, and Amrita Datta

Medicaid-eligible Hoosiers face health barriers due to the personal responsibility structure of the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP). In this community-engaged project, IUPUI faculty and students from the School of Liberal Arts, Department of Religious Studies, and Herron School of Art and Design, engaged HIP insurers and diverse congregational partners with the aim to strengthen public interest in HIP and the shared responsibility of supporting continuous health coverage for better wellness and care.
