Gov. Holcomb (R-IN) joined U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar at Eskenazi Hospital on Friday to announce Indiana gained federal approval to continue its Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP).
The plan, which the state calls a successful alternative to traditional Medicaid, has been approved through Dec. 2020.
This will allow the state to continue health coverage for more than 400,000 low-income adult Hoosiers.
The Healthy Indiana Plan was created in 2007 under Gov. Mitch Daniels. The program was expanded in 2015 by then Gov. Mike Pence with a federal waiver to implement HIP as an alternative to traditional Medicaid expansion.
