Delaware County's Covering Kids and Families receives $20,000 from MDwise to support efforts to enroll more children and adults in state health plans


MUNCIE, Ind. – March 18, 2011
Covering Kids and Families (CKF) of Delaware County recently received a $20,000 donation from MDwise, a statewide managed health care organization, to further its efforts to enroll more eligible children and families in the state’s Medicaid health plans.
CKF of Delaware County, overseen by Open Door Health Services, is a coalition of community partners that works to inform residents about state health insurance options and offers enrollment assistance to eligible individuals. Statewide, CKF of Indiana is made up of more than 500 partnering organizations committed to ensuring that all Hoosier children and families eligible for Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) are enrolled.
The $20,000 donation from MDwise will support CKF’s mission to help all Delaware County children and adults receive health coverage. MDwise is Indiana’s only not-for-profit managed care organization exclusively serving the state’s Medicaid population through three health plans – Hoosier Healthwise, the Healthy Indiana Plan and Care Select.
MDwise’s donation continues the organization’s long-standing support of CKF. Just last August, the organization donated 200 backpacks to Delaware County CKF’s Back to School events for students.  
With the help of MDwise and other supporters, CKF conducts various special events, including health fairs, and disseminates information about the state’s health plan options to Delaware County residents.
For more information or for help enrolling in HIP or Hoosier Healthwise, please contact Delaware County Covering Kids & Families at (765) 286-7000. Eligible residents can also apply at the local Department of Family Resources’ office, or online at
