The money granted to the state would open 6 new health centers.

Indiana is getting federal money to open six new health centers. The $4.5 million grant to establish the clinics comes from the Affordable Care Act.

Rep. Todd Young, R-9th District, says the money will help more Hoosiers get access to care, but he says it doesn’t change the frustration many Hoosiers are feeling about the Affordable Care Act.

“I hope that that’s helpful to the state of Indiana and to our constituents and I hope we can find ways to mitigate the pain that many Hoosiers are feeling as a result of this law,” he says.

In a statement, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called Indiana health centers “key partners” in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Meanwhile Young says he continues to hear complaints from Hoosiers who are frustrated by the Affordable Care Act, specifically by the price of insurance plans on the exchange and by the website that is still experiencing problems.
