By the beginning of next year, eligible small businesses in Washington can enroll in a new state health insurance program, the Health Insurance Partnership (HIP).

HIP is administered by the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) and has received funding from the federal government.

Businesses with less than 51 employees are eligible to purchase coverage through HIP if they meet the Eligibility Requirements.  According to the website, employers must contribute 40 percent of the cost of coverage and some employees may be eligible for premium subsidies of up to 90% based on family income.

To date, approximately 200 brokers have been trained to market the program across the state.
