What is Hoosier Care Connect?

  • A new coordinated care program for Hoosiers age 65 and over, or with blindness or a disability who live in the community and are not eligible for Medicare.
  • In Hoosier Care Connect you enroll with a health plan that provides most of your Medicaid-covered benefits.
    • A health plan, also called a managed care entity (MCE), is a group of doctors, pharmacies and hospitals that work together to help you get the health services you need.

    • Care coordination services based on your needs including:
      • Education on how to better manage your health and any chronic illnesses
      • Help in getting connected to medical, behavioral health and community resources
      • Support after you are discharged from the hospital to help you stay healthy and keep follow-up appointments
