The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has extended the Medicaid demonstration waiver for the Healthy Indiana Plan through February while it continues to review the state’s new waiver application. The health insurance program for low-income adults was set to expire today. “When the waiver is approved, Indiana will expand treatment options to Hoosiers impacted by the drug epidemic, enhance opportunities to connect eligible HIP participants to meaningful employment and community engagement, and ease administrative burdens for HIP members,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb.
