It is extremely simple to apply for Hip Medicaid. Simply visit their website at and click on ‘Learn more about Medicare Benefits’ which is in a purple box on the right hand side with a green button that says ‘Click Here’. This will direct you to Emblem Health because Hip Healthcare is now part of the Emblem Healthcare Company. HIP and GHI Medicare Plans have both been popular healthcare plans among New Yorkers to provide them with the health coverage they need and now, both plans have come together to form Emblem Health.

Emblem Health Medicare is health insurance run by the Federal government and is for people age 65 or older; under 65 with certain disabilities; and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), which is permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Before you apply, it is a good idea to have a good look through the website to see which plan is best suited to your needs. Click on the ‘Learn More’ button at the top of the screen and you will then be asked to enter your zip code to see which plans are available in your area. You will then be asked what type of plan you would like and have the options of Medical Only, Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug or the Prescription Drug Plan. You will also be asked what kind of price range you are looking for and how much you are willing to pay. By clicking on ‘What is Medicare’ you will be directed to page that gives a full description of all your options. If you are unsure, you can always call one of their customer services representatives on 1-800-447-9169, 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week. For the hearing and speech impaired, call 1-877-444-2786 and they can give you all the information you need.
