Transition of Wards of the Court and Foster Children into the Indiana Care Select Program

Effective July 1, 2008, all wards of the court and foster children currently enrolled in Medicaid will begin transitioning to the Indiana Care Select program. Some of these members are currently enrolled in other Medicaid programs and may already be receiving care from physicians enrolled in the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) provider network. The following aid categories will transition to Care Select:

MA-3 (Wards not IVE eligible under 18)

MA-4 (Title IVE foster children under 18)

MA-8 (Children Receiving Adoption Assistance)

MA-14 (Former Foster Children)

The Indiana Care Select Program is designed to improve the member's health status; enhance quality of life; improve member safety, member autonomy and adherence to treatment plans; and control fiscal growth. Through this program, the State will focus on the following objectives:

Development of treatment regimens for chronic illnesses will conform to evidence-based guidelines.

Primary care providers will be able to incorporate knowledge of functional assessments, behavioral changes, self-care strategies, and methods of addressing emotional or social distress into overall patient care.

Care will be less fragmented and more holistic by addressing a member's physical and behavioral health care needs in addition to his or her medical and social needs.

Communication will increase across settings and providers.

Members will have greater involvement in their care management.
