The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) recognizes that timely identification of risk factors improves birth outcomes. A Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) transaction helps identify risk factors in the earliest stages of pregnancy for women enrolled in Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise, and Hoosier Care Connect. A recognized provider (that is, one who is enrolled in the IHCP and able to perform pregnancy tests on members) is eligible for a $60 reimbursement for a single NOP transaction per pregnancy completed and successfully submitted using the Provider Healthcare Portal. The submitted information is used by the woman's managed care entity (MCE) to determine the risk level associated with the pregnancy and establish areas of follow-up care.
