Indiana Extends Healthy Indiana Plan Through April

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - More than 10,000 low-income Indiana residents who participate in a state-run insurance plan will be able to keep their benefits through April.
The Family and Social Services Administration announced Tuesday it is extending its Healthy Indiana Plan to participants who earn between 100 percent and 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The move will give members more time to obtain coverage through the federal health care exchange.
FSSA Secretary Debra Minott said many HIP members have struggled to enroll in the exchange because of technical issues.
Federal officials have agreed to let Indiana extend its Healthy Indiana Plan through 2014 but changed the income requirements to focus on those below 100 percent of the federal poverty level.
The HIP extension could cost Indiana up to $11 million.
