Why the IHCP Needs You
By becoming an Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) provider, you have the opportunity to improve the health and well-being of more Hoosiers, including the state’s most vulnerable populations. Through programs such as Traditional Medicaid, the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise, and Hoosier Care Connect, the IHCP performs a vital public service, helping about one in seven Hoosiers stay healthy or start down the road to better health. The IHCP provides pregnant women and their babies with critical prenatal care and continued care for children throughout their developmental years. The IHCP also provides critical health coverage for low-income individuals of all ages, including the elderly and those with disabilities.
To achieve these goals, the IHCP relies on the participation of providers from a variety of specialties across the state. Depending on where you practice, your participation in the IHCP may be especially critical – see Locations in Need of Providers on this website.
How Providers Enroll with the IHCP
The IHCP Provider Enrollment Transactions page offers information about the current provider enrollment process, including links to a number of web pages with detailed information helpful to providers interested in serving IHCP members.
The IHCP enrollment webinar, Ways to avoid common mistakes during the enrollment process, is another resource and covers important details for enrolling as an IHCP provider.
