The Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0 (HIP 2.0) waiver proposal has a very brief process delay and is now back in the hands of the federal government for review. Several new organizations plan to participate in Indiana’s HealthCare.gov Marketplace for the 2015 enrollment year. ClaimAid continues its work with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) to educate and advocate for our clients and patients. Our goal remains to provide you and your patients / clients / consumers with the ClaimAid Advantage.
HIP 2.0 Update
- The Governor’s HIP 2.0 waiver proposal was returned by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Indiana to amend to include additional comments.
- What you need to know: A slight delay in the HIP 2.0 waiver application occurred because Indiana did not include comments from the 525-member Native American Potawatomi tribe. The comments were quickly collected and returned back to the federal government. Roughly 45 days will need to pass from the time a federal public comment period is announced, making announcements unlikely before the end of September. The state of Indiana is also submitting a request to extend the current HIP program beyond 2014 in the event that the HIP 2.0 Waiver is not approved.

If you or your patients / clients have questions about how this new plan will impact insurance options, you may direct them to a ClaimAid advocate or CONTACT US.

ClaimAid Works with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration
- ClaimAid is working closely with state officials, policy makers and program directors to ensure the concerns of our clients and patients are addressed.
- What you need to know: ClaimAid continues to be acknowledged as Indiana’s leading provider of professional enrollment services. In this dynamic environment, ClaimAid remains highly engaged with health care stakeholders during transitions for the Marketplace, Medicaid and HIP 2.0. “There are a lot of people in Indiana who work hard to help people to get coverage they need,” said [FSSA spokesperson Jim] Gavin. “There are organizations like Covering Kids and Families, ClaimAid and the hospital and doctors themselves that help people who are uninsured find coverage options.” 07-24-2014
