What is Gateway to Work?

Gateway to Work is a new feature of the Healthy Indiana Plan that helps connect HIP members to Indiana's workforce training programs, work search resources and potential employers. HIP members who are unemployed or working less than 20 hours a week will be referred to available employment, work search and job training programs that will assist them in securing new or potentially better employment.

Gateway to Work is a voluntary program. HIP members will be notified if they have been referred to the program. Eligibility for HIP coverage is not affected if a member chooses to not participate.

Those interested in participating in Gateway to Work should call 1-800-403-0864 and select Option 1 for the health coverage menu and then Option 6 for Gateway to Work.

Once engaged in the Gateway to Work program, members may receive case management services, participate in a structured job readiness program and receive help with their job search. Additional training, volunteer work experiences and/or education may be provided, as appropriate. Gateway to Work participants will also be invited to attend hiring events with employers.

For more information, please contact us by filling out the FSSA Contact Form (please specify "HIP Inquiries" for how your inquiry should be directed) or call toll free: 1-877-GET-HIP-9.
