Health Insurance Premium Program (HIPP)

All applications for the Health Insurance Premium Program (HIPP) must be submitted online via our Grants Management System (GMS).

Through the Health Insurance Premium Program (HIPP), the American Kidney Fund pays Part B Medicare, Medigap, commercial, and COBRA premiums for dialysis patients who have insufficient income and savings. These premium payments allow patients to continue their health insurance coverage, enabling access to physician care and medical treatment.

HIPP is funded 100% by voluntary contributions from dialysis providers. HIPP serves as a “last resort” source of financial assistance. Last year, more than 66,000 dialysis patients in the United States were able to maintain their insurance coverage thanks to grants from HIPP. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Patient Services Department at or 1.800.795.3226.
