Genetically Handicapped Persons Program

The Genetically Handicapped Persons Program (GHPP) is a health care program for adults with specific genetic diseases. GHPP helps beneficiaries with their health care costs. GHPP works with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other members of the health care team in providing many types of health services.

 

To Avoid a Delay in Processing your Application/Renewal:

When submitting a GHPP application, it is very important that you include a copy of your prior year's signed Federal Tax Form 1040. If you are dependent on another person's tax return, that return must be submitted. If you do not submit a completed and signed GHPP application and include all necessary documentation, GHPP staff will not be able to enroll you into the program, renew your program eligibility, or authorize services that are beyond your eligibility period.
