MDwise selected for Indiana managed care services contract

The Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA) – acting on behalf of the Family and Social Services Administration’s (FSSA) Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) – recommended that MDwise be one of four Managed Care Entities awarded a contract to provide risk-based managed care services statewide to Medicaid beneficiaries enrolled in the State of Indiana’s Hoosier Healthwise and The Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) programs.

The proposed contract covers a four-year period beginning Jan. 1, 2023, with two one-year extensions possible.

MDwise has been providing health care benefits to Hoosiers on Medicaid through the Hoosier Healthwise and The Healthy Indiana Plan programs since 1994. Its parent organization, McLaren Health Care, is a nonprofit integrated health system dedicated to ensuring that all Indiana families have access to high-quality health care, regardless of income.

“MDwise is honored to continue to serve Hoosiers providing comprehensive health coverage and encouraging healthy lifestyles,” said Jessica Cromer, president and CEO of MDwise.
