Statement as issued Thursday by Ivy Tech:
Officials from Gov. Mike Pence’s administration will be in Fort Wayne on Monday detailing the governor’s plan to expand the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) to cover approximately 350,000 Hoosiers. Ivy Tech Community College Northeast will host the conversation about the future of health care in Indiana, featuring State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D., and Indiana Medicaid Director Joe Moser.
Last month, Pence announced his plans to advance private, market-based Medicaid reforms in Indiana by expanding the current Healthy Indiana Plan. Pence unveiled HIP 2.0, a consumer-driven health care coverage program for low-income adults that builds on Indiana’s history of consumer-driven health care while providing new incentives for members to take personal responsibility for their health.
The event is open to the public, and will take place at 1 p.m. June 9 in the Student Life Center, Room 121, on Ivy Tech’s North Campus, 3701 Dean Drive in Fort Wayne.
