Hoosier Care Connect Frequently Asked Questions

Hoosier Care Connect is a new coordinated care program which will serve a portion of Indiana Medicaid's aged, blind and disabled population. Enrollees will include children and adults eligible for Medicaid on the basis of age (65+), blindness or disability, who are not also enrolled in Medicare, do not reside in an institutional setting and are not enrolled in a home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver.

House Enrolled Act 1328 (HEA 1328), passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013, tasked the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) with exploring managed care options for certain members of the Medicaid population with disabilities. FSSA then formed the Aged, Blind and Disabled Task Force. The work completed by the Task Force laid the foundation for development of the Hoosier Care Connect program, including stakeholder input and program goals developed through that process.

Through Hoosier Care Connect, FSSA seeks to continue to improve the quality of care and health outcomes for members. This includes improved clinical and functional status, enhanced quality of life, improved member safety, enhanced member autonomy and adherence to treatment plans. In developing Hoosier Care Connect, FSSA seeks to achieve the following goals:

  • Improve quality outcomes and consistency of care across the delivery system;
  • Ensure enrollee choice, protections and access;
  • Coordinate care across the delivery system and care continuum; and
  • Provide flexible person centered care.

FSSA will contract with managed care entities (MCEs) to administer the Hoosier Care Connect program. MCEs will be selected through a competitive bidding process. A copy of the RFP can be found at http://www.in.gov/idoa/proc/bids/rfp-15-001/
