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

ipants access to a high-deductible health plan that includes an account patterned on the model of a health savings account. To assist with out-of-pocket costs incurred prior to the coverage threshold, both the individual and the state will make contributions to a Personal Wellness and Responsibility (POWER) account. Participant contributions to the POWER account will be set on a sliding scale based on ability to pay, but at no more than five percent of gross family income. Any funds remaining in the account at the end of the year can be rolled-over to offset the following year's contributions if age-appropriate preventative services are obtained.

No copay will be required for services except for use of an emergency room for non-emergency treatment. Benefits will include physician services, prescription drugs, home health services, in-and out-patient hospital services, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and preventive services.

The program also permits and encourages employers to contribute to their employees' POWER accounts.

"The Healthy Indiana Plan provides support for those with low-incomes but also requires them to assume some responsibility for the cost of that care. I am pleased to approve the waiver for this new program and hope other states will follow Indiana's model of combining personal responsibility with public support to help those who are truly in need gain health coverage," Secretary Leavitt said.

More information about the Healthy Indiana Plan is available on the State of Indiana's Web site at http://www.hip.in.gov.
