Changes to Medicaid Covered Services

Family Voices Indiana has received several questions about how recently announced changes to Medicaid covered services will impact children. We encourage our members to view the official Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) announcements at: http://www.indianamedicaid.com/ihcp/Publications/bulletin_results.asp
It is important to note that several of the limits on services apply to adults, 21 years old or over, and not to children. Changes in reimbursement rates do impact all Medicaid recipients. We encourage families who are concerned about the impact of reimbursement rates on access to continue to work with providers, case managers and others to identify providers who can meet your care needs.
Questions about changes should be directed to:

Medicaid Customer Assistance at (317) 655-3240 in the Indianapolis local area or toll-free at 1-800-577-1278.
