[FSSA] Public Notice for Indiana HIP Extension 1115 Waiver
Start Date: 5/21/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/21/2014
Entry Description
Notice of Public Hearing and Public Comment Period

Pursuant to 42 CFR Part 431.408, notice is hereby given that: (1) on May 28, 2014, at 9:00 a.m., at the Indiana Government Center South, Conference Center Room B, 402 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2744; and (2) on May 29, 2014, at 1:00 p.m., at the Indiana State House, Room 156-B, 200 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2786, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (“FSSA”) will hold public hearings on the extension of the existing Healthy Indiana Plan 1115 waiver request (“HIP Extension Waiver”) that will be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) to extend the current Healthy Indiana Plan (“HIP”) for calendar years 2015 through 2017. Both public hearings will be accessible via web conference at http://www.webinar.in.gov/hip/. In addition, FSSA will present the HIP Extension Waiver to the Medicaid Advisory Committee on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at the Indiana War Memorial, Shoup Hall, 431 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

This notice also serves to open the 30-day public comment period, which closes June 21, 2014 at 4:30 pm.

The Healthy Indiana Plan (“HIP”), which passed the Indiana General Assembly in 2007 with bipartisan support, builds upon the state’s long and successful history with consumer-driven health plans. Individuals eligible for HIP are non-disabled adults between the ages of 19 and 64 with household income below 100% of the federal poverty limit (“FPL”). HIP, via private health insurance carriers, offers its members a High Deductible Health Plan (“HDHP”) paired with a Personal Wellness and Responsibility (“POWER”) account, which operates similarly to a Health Savings Account (“HSA”). This private health insurance experience provides an alternative to traditional Medicaid and promotes consumerism by requiring members to have “skin in the game,” which empowers them to demand price and quality transparency as they make cost-conscious health care decisions and take responsibility for their health. HIP, in its current form, is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2014.

FSSA is submitting the HIP Extension Waiver concurrently with a separate HIP 2.0 1115 waiver (“HIP 2.0 Waiver”) application. The HIP 2.0 Waiver seeks to expand HIP to all non-disabled Hoosiers between the ages of 19 and 64 with household income below 138% of the FPL. FSSA is submitting the HIP Extension Waiver as an alternative to the HIP 2.0 Waiver in order to preserve the current HIP program in the event CMS does not approve the HIP 2.0 Waiver. FSSA is not requesting any changes or modifications in the HIP Extension Waiver.
