Healthy Indiana Plan Gets Mixed Reviews at Hearing

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The Healthy Indiana Plan medical savings accounts are getting mixed reviews as Gov. Mike Pence seeks federal approval to use them to expand Medicaid in this state.
The first of two public hearings on Pence's proposal to use HIP to complete a Medicaid expansion for Indiana residents earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level drew both opponents and supporters Wednesday. A second hearing is scheduled Friday.
Representatives of hospitals in Indianapolis, Lake County and rural Rush County say HIP would achieve the Medicaid expansion and reduce the amount of indigent care they must provide to uninsured patients.
However, Democratic state Rep. Sheila Klinker of Lafayette says some single men and women haven't been able to enroll in HIP and aren't getting the health care they need.
