Healthy Indiana Plan
Member News and Announcements
Hoosier Care Connect: The contract between MDwise and the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) for MDwise’s participation in the Hoosier Care Connect program is ending on March 31, 2017.
This decision has no impact on our current Healthy Indiana Plan and Hoosier Healthwise members. We will retain our membership in those plans, and look forward to continuing to provide high-quality health care to those individuals.
Pharmacy Benefits: You may have gotten a letter in the mail from MDwise about a change to your health plan. It said you need to find a new pharmacy for your prescriptions by December 15th. It encouraged you to choose Walgreens. You do not have to choose Walgreens. You can find a list of all available pharmacies on our Find A Pharmacy directory. You need to make this change by January 1st. If you need help finding a new pharmacy you can also call customer service at 1-800-356-1204.
Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy (WSP), IU Health and Eskenazi pharmacies are exclusive providers for most retail specialty drugs. Prescriptions for these products will need to be filled through WSP, IU Health or Eskenazi. Click here to see the list of specialty drugs that you must get filled at Walgreens, IU Health or Eskenazi.
Effective July 1, 2016: Effective July 1, 2016: primary medical providers (PMP), specialists, behavioral health providers and hospitals in the Community Health Network will be available for MDwise Healthy Indiana Plan members. You can find doctors and hospitals that are included in the MDwise network by searching our Find a Doctor directory.
There are two HIP plans. Each plan has different benefits.
HIP Plus has no copayments except for the improper use of the emergency room. This means you won't have to pay when you visit the doctor, fill prescriptions or stay in the hospital. HIP Plus also includes dental and vision benefits. Members in HIP Plus contribute to a Personal Wellness and Responsibility Account (POWER Account
). These monthly contributions to your POWER Account may be as low as $1 a month.
HIP Basic offers limited benefits and can be more expensive than paying your low monthly HIP Plus POWER Account contribution. In HIP Basic, you have to make a payment every time you receive a health care service. HIP Basic copayments range from $4-$8 per doctor visit or prescription filled and may be as high as $75 per hospital stay.
