Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for Indiana Medicaid, you must be a resident of the state of Indiana, a U.S. national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. Most non-disabled adults will be covered under the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP).

Disabled individuals or those living in a Medicaid-certified institution may have higher income limits and are subject to an asset limit. Some categories require the payment of a monthly premium or contribution based on family size and income.

A disregard of 5% of the annual Federal Poverty Limit will be applied to family income for the Healthy Indiana Plan.
