Indiana seeks federal waiver to continue Medicaid expansion

Indiana Gov. Eric J. Holcomb, a Republican, has asked CMS to extend the state's Medicaid expansion for an additional three years.

In the waiver application submitted to CMS Tuesday, Gov. Holcomb requests the state's Medicaid expansion program, called HIP 2.0, continue through Jan. 31, 2021. The program is currently set to expire Jan. 31, 2018.

The application also requests enhancements for the program, including expanded access to substance use disorder services.

"Indiana has built a program that is delivering real results in a responsible, efficient, and effective way," said Gov. Holcomb. "I look forward to maintaining the flexibility to grow this remarkably successful tool and to preserve our ability to respond to the unique needs of Hoosiers."
