HIPA Forms

Please note: Problems downloading forms on this page are typically related to the type of browser you are using. Our forms are in PDF format. Downloading works best with Internet Explorer which uses Adobe Acrobat Reader as the resident PDF viewer. Browsers such as Fire-Fox or Google Chrome have their own built in PDF viewer which will not read a PDF “fillable” form.

The following link is an explanation on how to change the PDF viewer within your Browser to Acrobat Reader which will open a PDF formatted document:  http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-browser-acrobat-xi.html
