Indiana Gov: Healthy Indiana Plan and the Affordable Care Act


Indiana is fortunate to have the Healthy Indiana Plan, a consumer-directed alternative to Medicaid that has shifted the Medicaid paradigm in Indiana. The program currently exists through a waiver from Medicaid’s rules.

Our administration strongly supports the bipartisan-created Healthy Indiana Plan and has asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to allow the Healthy Indiana Plan to be used as a vehicle to bring health care coverage to more Hoosiers. Governor Pence has made clear to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that any discussion of a coverage expansion must begin with the Healthy Indiana Plan.

We look forward to continuing to work with the Department of Health and Human Services on the future of the Healthy Indiana Plan.
