Apply for Coverage
To apply for Medicaid, you will need to fill out and submit a Medicaid application, also known as an Indiana Application for Health Coverage. Once you submit your complete application, it will take up to 90 days to determine if you are eligible; however, many applications are reviewed in less time. You can check on the status of your application online by clicking on your county of residence or by calling 1-800-403-0864. You will need to have your case number to check the status of your application.
If you are a pregnant woman, you may be able to receive medical care while you wait for your application to be processed. Please refer to Presumptive Eligibility for more info.
Medicaid applications are processed by the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), Division of Family Resources (DFR). You can apply in person, on the Internet, or by phone.
