If you have kidney failure and have health insurance coverage but are unable to afford the cost of your premiums, the American Kidney Fund's Health Insurance Premium Program (HIPP) may be able to help. Patients may qualify for this program if they have demonstrated insufficient income and savings to pay their premium bills. HIPP covers premiums for Part B Medicare, Medigap, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid (in states that charge premiums), commercial plans (including Marketplace plans), employer group health plans and COBRA plans.  

AKF is an independent nonprofit organization. Our HIPP program depends on the generosity of donors, and we accept new applications for HIPP assistance as funding becomes available.
