Back on Track Events

MDwise partners with community groups throughout the state for Back on Track events to help Hoosiers get the shots they need to stay healthy. They can also take action to check their health care coverage as Indiana returns to normal after the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Back on Track events are customized for the community where it’s taking place, but all will feature:

  • Free food
  • Chances to win a $50 gift card (MDwise members get a chance to win a laptop too!)
  • Free drawstring backpack with school supplies
  • Routine shots for kids (measles/mumps/rubella, polio, HPV, etc.)
  • COVID-19 shots for kids and adults
  • Flu shots for kids and adults during flu season
  • Help navigating to check health care coverage

Why do I need to check my coverage?

  • During the COVID-19 federal public health emergency, Indiana Medicaid members have been able to keep their coverage without interruption. When the public health emergency ends, Indiana Medicaid will begin to return to normal operations. This means that information about each member is looked at once a year to determine if the member still qualifies for coverage.
  • The state of Indiana can process many of these redeterminations automatically based on information the state has available. In some situations, the state of Indiana will need to ask the member for information about themselves and their family, like current address, employment status and income, age and family size.
  • Anyone currently in one of Indiana Medicaid’s health coverage programs, including the Healthy Indiana Plan, Hoosier Healthwise, Hoosier Care Connect or traditional Medicaid, taking action now could help you stay covered.
  • Is your address correct? What is your income? The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration needs all Medicaid members to take these steps to ensure the state has your current info.

  • Indiana Medicaid will never discontinue a member’s coverage without them first having the opportunity to give the state new and updated information. The state will send members more info about this in the mail. Members must respond to requests from the Division of Family Resources and provide the needed information when you’re contacted.
  • Members no longer eligible for coverage through the Medicaid program should check to see if they qualify through the Federal Marketplace online at or by calling 800- 318-2596. Hoosiers over 65 could look into health coverage through the federal Medicare program at or by calling 800-MEDICARE. Indiana’s State Health Insurance Program can also help with any questions about Medicare. Find them online at or call 800-452-4800.
