Healthwise Newsletters and PHIP Handbook

PHIP creates a couple of resources that provide information to our membership.

The Healthwise newsletter is mailed quarterly to all PHIP members. You may access current and past newsletters.

PHIP updates their handbooks annually. PHIP members will receive a handbook in the fall that provides plan information for the following plan year. You may access a copy of our full PHIP Handbook and Benefit Guide.
