HIP 10-Year Extension Reaches Next Step

Indiana has taken one step closer to extending the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), the state’s Medicaid health insurance program, for 10 more years.

The state was notified the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services finished reviewing its application this week. The next step is a 30-day federal public comment period which is now open.

HIP is currently renewed every three or four years, but the state hopes to get it approved through December 2030. In addition to a 10-year extension, the state is asking for more flexibility and additional extensions of new HIP components like substance use disorder treatment.
