Current Status of Medicaid Expansion in State:
State is studying options, leaning "no."
Regular legislative process.
18% of Illinois residents receive Medicaid benefits. 70% of all beneficiaries have managed care. The state's Medicaid program covers up to 250% of FPL. Indiana Family and Social Services oversees the state's Medicaid program.
Expansion of Medicaid to 133% of FPL would be a 29% increase over current enrollment.
The governor has stated that the expansion is not something the state can afford or will support as it currently exists. Though the state is heavily leaning toward not expanding, no final decision has been made and study of benefits and costs is ongoing.
· Indiana was one of the states that sued the federal government for the repeal of the ACA. The Governor has expressed strong disapproval of expanding on a flawed healthcare bureaucracy.
· The state has received an 1115 Waiver to cover individuals without children or custody of their children up to 200% of FPL who are not otherwise eligible for Medicaid or Medicare.
