On Oct. 15, we received a letter from Hoosier Insurance Plan asking us to reapply for HIP before Oct. 31. We filled out a new application and mailed it in. My husband is not insured; the employer does not offer insurance.
Around Nov. 15, we received a denial from FSSA, stating the program had met its quota and that we made $187 too much to qualify.
We have applied for the last four years, only to be denied because the program had met its quota. No matter what time of the year we applied, it was the same reason — it had already met its quota. This was the first time they mentioned anything about making too much money.
We then made an appointment with an insurance agent and filled out the application on the government website. We finished, only to be kicked off, saying we had to wait until the Healthy Indiana Plan contacted us.
We have not heard from either agency. He is still not insured. So now what do we do?
