HHS Approves Medicaid Waiver to Create New Indiana Health Plan for Uninsured Hoosiers
Date:12/14/2007

Healthy Indiana Plan Combines Personal Responsibility and Public Dollars

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt today announced the approval of a Medicaid waiver that will allow the state of Indiana to implement an innovative health care proposal giving approximately 120,000 low-income, uninsured residents access to critical health care services. Through the waiver, the state will be able to begin accepting applications for the new health care coverage, called the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP).

"This is a forward-thinking plan to reduce the numbers of uninsured Indiana residents, and I applaud Governor Mitch Daniels for leading such important health care reform in the state of Indiana," Secretary Leavitt said. "It is critical that every state in this nation be thinking of creative new ways to help residents gain access to health care and, at the same time, working to make those ideas become reality. At the national level, President Bush has outlined several proposals that would give more Americans access to health insurance, but this is an excellent example of what can be done now in the states to advance this important objective."

"We're glad the Department of Health and Human Services and Office of Management and Budget gave us approval for this program in a matter of months," said Governor Daniels. "This is a big step forward that will lead to approximately 120,000 uninsured Hoosiers having the peace of mind of health insurance."

HIP was approved as a Medicaid Section 1115 demonstration project and will extend health insurance to low-income parents of children now covered by Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), as well as childless adults. To be eligible for coverage, enrollees' incomes must not exceed 200 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL), or $20,420 for an individual and $41,300 for a family of four.
