More Indiana residents can buy into state’s health plan
AP/Chicago Tribune, July 3, 2008
Indiana is allowing uninsured state residents to buy into its Healthy Indiana Plan, which was previously available only to low-income residents. The buy-in is available to people ages 19-64 who have been without insurance for at least six months and who are not offered employer-based coverage. The Healthy Indiana Plan includes several benefits, including preventative health services such as mammograms, prostate exams and flu shots, and a health savings account. But people who do not meet low-income requirements will have to pay a monthly rate to buy into the plan, which for them will not be subsidized by the state or federal government.
