If you're interested in more information about MHIP or have a question about your application, your first thought is to call MHIP directly.

But MHIP's office doesn't handle all aspects of the operation. Here's how to determine who can give you the right answer — fast.

If you're still trying to decide whether to apply for MHIP coverage, call MHIP at 800-821-2231. Call center representatives can answer questions about eligibility and monthly premium cost.

To check on the status of an MHIP application, call the carrier managing coverage in your area.
