Indiana was among the first states to use a section 1115 demonstration to implement the ACA Medicaid expansion. The demonstration, called the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) 2.0, encouraged enrollees to take responsibility for their health care through monthly contributions, copayments, and strategies to promote healthy behaviors. HIP 2.0 also included provisions that allowed Indiana to disenroll some newly-eligible individuals with incomes above 100 percent of the FPL who did not pay their monthly contributions on a timely basis. In addition, HIP 2.0 included a waiver of non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for some demonstration enrollees and a waiver of retroactive Medicaid coverage for most HIP 2.0 enrollees. This report is part of the federal evaluation of Indiana’s HIP 2.0 demonstration. It summarizes key findings from the 2018 site visit, including information obtained from key informant interviews and focus groups, and impact estimates based on data from the ACS and BRFSS.
