MDwise hosting 30+ info sessions statewide during open enrollment

10/30/2019
 
Hoosiers with health coverage through the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) have the opportunity to change their health plan through Dec. 15 for 2020.
 
To help Hoosiers understand their options and make the right choices, MDwise is hosting more than 30 Health Benefits Connections events across the state, and the nonprofit organization also will attend other community events to answer questions during this period.
 
“We know that insurance can be confusing, and we really want to help educate Hoosiers about how it works,” said Nicki Gilbert, outreach supervisor for MDwise. “That’s why we are going into communities all over the state to meet one-on-one with people to help them navigate the process and put them in touch with the right resources.”
 
MDwise has fulltime outreach representatives throughout Indiana to assist Hoosiers with understanding health coverage. In Central Indiana alone, outreach reps will hold at least 19 Health Benefits Connection events where they will address such topics as determining the best health plan for individuals and families, the benefits of HIP Plus, benefit renewal and enrolling for the first time.
 
To request that a MDwise outreach representative be present at a specific location, community event or faith community, please contact Nicki Gilbert at 317-822-7282.
