Medicaid info

In response to COVID-19, some policy and program changes have been made to help ensure members of Healthy Indiana Plan, Hoosier Care Connect, Hoosier Healthwise, and traditional Medicaid are able to maintain continuous coverage in this critical time.  Here is more info below from FSSA!

Member Eligibility – Member health coverage will not be terminated during the public health emergency. Member coverage will only end if a member voluntarily withdraws or moves out of the state. This applies to all full coverage Indiana Health Coverage Programs. It does NOT apply to presumptive eligibility.  Presumptive eligible members must still complete a full IHCP application.

Cost Sharing – All cost sharing is suspended for the duration of the public health emergency. Members who typically had co-payments will not have any co-payments applied starting April 1, 2020. This applies to all IHCP programs including HIP. This includes pharmacy co-payments.

Premiums and POWER Account contributions will be waived for the months of March-August 2020.  This applies to the CHIP program, HIP and MEDWorks. All members who made payments for the month of March or any future months will have those payments applied as credits on their account when payments are required again.

Pharmacy – Pharmacies are now allowed to fill prescriptions with name brand drugs in the event that the generic drug the member takes is out of supply. Pharmacies can also now fill some prescriptions early and can fill maintenance prescriptions for 90-days, if requested.

Additional resources – Members with questions should contact their health plan (Anthem, CareSource, MDwise or MHS) using the information found on the back of their health coverage card, or on this web page. Questions can also be submitted via the web form found here.
