For more than six years, the Healthy Indiana Plan has delivered quality care to highly satisfied members and achieved measurable results. It has been successful at encouraging the use of preventive care and decreasing the use of the emergency room for non-emergency conditions. In addition, HIP has empowered its members to act as consumers in the health care market and to take responsibility for their health care choices. HIP 2.0 builds on the successes of the original HIP design and adds additional choices that further promote HIP’s consumer-directed model and provide new incentives for members to take personal responsibility for their health. Through the implementation of HIP 2.0 and the availability of HIP to more Hoosiers, Indiana will replace traditional Medicaid for all non-disabled adults ages 19-64, while ensuring that all Hoosiers have access to affordable health insurance.
In addition to the HIP 2.0 waiver, the state has submitted a contingency waiver to renew the current Healthy Indiana Plan program for another three years. The Pence administration strongly encourages the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to approve the HIP 2.0 program. However, if CMS does not approve the HIP 2.0 waiver request, the State submits this request as an alternative application to preserve the current HIP program for the current enrollees who rely on the program.
