Don't risk a gap in coverage. Get ready to RENEW now.
Do you have the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) insurance?
Everyone with health insurance from the State (also known as Medicaid) will need to renew their coverage in the coming year and should make sure the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration (FSSA) has their correct address. You can update your information on the benefits portal (https://fssabenefits.in.gov) or by calling 800-403-0864.
It is also important to open and respond to all mail from FSSA and your health plan (Anthem, CareSource, MDwise, MHS, or United Healthcare).
Do you or someone you know have Medicaid?
Indiana Medicaid provides health insurance for low-income children, adults, senios, pregnant people, and people with disabilities. Medicaid covers 1 in 3 Hoosiers—more than two million people in Indiana! Everyone with Medicaid will need to renew their coverage in the coming year. This did not happen the last three years. This includes Hoosiers with the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise, Hoosier Care Connect, Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicare Savings Program, and traditional Medicaid.
Anyone covered by Indiana Medicaid should make sure the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration (FSSA) has their correct address.
