The Pence Administration is seeking a waiver to replace Indiana’s Medicaid program with a new version of the Healthy Indiana Plan. Pence says HIP 2.0 will feature three new options for uninsured Hoosiers.
Speaking at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis today, Governor Pence unveiled a new state-sponsored health care plan that would cover Hoosiers who earn up to 138% of the federal poverty limit.
Like the original Healthy Indiana Plan, HIP 2.0 asks individuals to pay into a health savings account. Those who do will be eligible for a new top tier plan called HIP PLUS.
Westchester Medical Center recently had to reverse positions. Their decision to refuse all insurance plans available on the New York Health Insurance Exchange was met with moral outrage. As a result, they now accept one of the seven plans available.
