  • Healthy Indiana Plan - SMI/SED Amendment (modified: 5 weeks ago)
    On August 30, 2019, the State of Indiana submitted an amendment to their section 1115 demonstration, "Healthy Indiana Plan." This amendment will allow the state to receive federal reimbursement for providing services to Medicaid eligible individuals, ages 21-64, who are diagnosed with a serious mental illness (SMI) or serious emotional disturbance (SED) who have an acute inpatient stay in an Institution for Mental Disease (IMD).

  • Healthy Indiana Plan - Workforce Bridge Account Amendment (modified: 2 months ago)
    On July 25, 2019, the State of Indiana submitted an amendment to their section 1115 demonstration, "Healthy Indiana Plan." This amendment will allow the state to establish "Workforce Bridge Accounts" which would provide qualifying outgoing HIP participants the ability to continue to use up to $1,000 for premiums, deductibles, copayments and coinsurance for 12 months during their transition to commercial coverage. The HIP Workforce Bridge Account is proposed with the goals of supporting the transition to commercial coverage and mitigating the disincentive associated with increasing income and losing access to HIP coverage. This amendment also proposes changes to the Gateway to Work program, adding an exemption for members of federally recognized tribes and changing the exemption for caretakers of dependent children to caretakers of a dependent child under the age of 13. The federal comment period will be open from August 8, 2019 through September 7, 2019.

Currently, the NEMT waiver expires November 30, 2016. The waiver of NEMT impacts all new adult group HIP 2.0 beneficiaries (both those in HIP Basic and HIP Plus) and does not apply to pregnant women, individuals determined to be medically frail, Section 1931 parents and caretaker relatives, and individuals eligible for transitional medical assistance. The federal comment period will be open from August 12, 2016 through September 11, 2016.
  • Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0 - Three Year Extension (modified: 2 years ago)
    Indiana submitted an application to extend the Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0 demonstration for three years.

Premium payments are required for individuals with incomes above 100 percent of the FPL but not for individuals with lower incomes, who will enroll in HIP Basic if they do not make premiums. The state is requesting to expand access to critical mental health and substance use disorder services to target substance use disorders; to have a premium surcharge to target tobacco cessation; and to extend authority to charge a graduated copayment for non-emergency use of the emergency department. The federal comment period will be open from February 15, 2017 through March 17, 2017.
