HMA Medicaid Market Solutions helped the State of Indiana secure approval for an extension of its Medicaid Section 1115 Waiver, the Healthy Indiana Plan. Below is a summary of what the renewal entails.
On February 1, 2018, Indiana received approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to continue its long-standing Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) with a three-year renewal. This CMS approval maintains the core of the HIP program and incorporates additional features, including expansion of the current Gateway to Work initiative to add required community engagement for non-exempt HIP members beginning in 2019. Also new is a substance use disorder component that will be available to all Indiana Medicaid members, including those enrolled in HIP.
