"Now That's HIP" is a slogan from 2002.
HIP was founded in the 1940s as a prepaid group practice health plan conducting business in New York City, Long Island and Westchester. Today, we are a health care company that offers a broad spectrum of group and network-based health care products including HMO, PPO, POS and EPO plans, and ASO services to approximately 1.4 million individuals in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Wittmer, executor vice president. HIP, the first large-scale community plan for all-inclusive, pre-paid medical care for employed New Yorkers, will begin operation this fall.
