Family Voices urges our members to follow and advocate for Senate Bill 537. This bill addresses the eligibility for our children's health insurance program Hooiser Healthwise) and would require the Indiana office of Medicaid policy and planning to apply to the federal government to increase income eligibility in the children's health insurance program to 300% of the federal poverty level. (Current eligibility in the program is 250% of the federal poverty level.) This change would provide important coverage to many families.
