[FSSA] Healthy Indiana Plan to Open Enrollment to 8,000 Childless Adults
Start Date: 7/11/2011
End Date: 7/11/2011
Entry Description
 
INDIANAPOLIS (JULY 11, 2011) – Today, the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) announced that 8,000 Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) enrollment slots will be opened to childless adults August 1, 2011. The program, created by Governor Mitch Daniels and designed to promote health and personal responsibility, began accepting applications in January 2008 and is currently serving over 42,000 Hoosiers. Federal regulations limit how many childless adults may be enrolled in the program. However, FSSA is now able to open these slots due to attrition. 
 
"The Healthy Indiana Plan has been a nationally recognized success since it began," said FSSA Secretary Michael Gargano. “We are fortunate to now be able to open this program to additional childless adults that need low-cost health insurance.”
 
HIP is for uninsured Hoosier adults between the ages of 19 and 64. HIP offers full health benefits including hospital services, mental health care, physician services, prescriptions, diagnostic exams and disease management. HIP members have preventive services, including smoking cessation, available as a component of their overall health care. Participants pay between 2% and 5% of their gross family income.
 
HIP Eligibility Requirements:
  • Individuals must earn less than 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL). A single adult earning no more than $21,660 a year, or families of four earning approximately $44,000 likely meet the basic financial requirements.
  • Individuals must not have access to employer sponsored health insurance coverage, whether or not it is utilized by the individual. 
  • Individuals must be uninsured for the previous six months.
