In 1991, the state established the Utah Comprehensive Health Insurance Pool (HIPUtah), as a state-subsidized high risk pool.  The program specifically address’ the problem of people with serious medical conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses, that made them medically uninsurable and, as a result, unable to obtain medical insurance at any price.  As of March 2008, just over 3,500 people were enrolled.  This program is administered privately by SelectHealth.
