Family Voices Indiana has been getting calls from families being auto-enrolled in Medicaid Disability/MASI due to the fact that their child receives SSI. We have previously posted information that families have freedom of choice to remain on HHW if they are eligible and not receiving home and community based services through the waiver program: http://fvindiana.blogspot.com/2014/04/information-about-freedom-of-choice.html We sought clarification from FSSA about what families should do to remain on Hoosier Healthwise if they are eligible and wish to do so: Individuals do have the option to opt for another category of Medicaid if eligible. To make this request, families should contact the Division of Family Resources (DFR). Families can contact their local DFR office by logging on to: http://in.gov/fssa/dfr/ 2999.htm and entering their zip code, or search by county. Families can also contact DFR by telephone at 1-800-403-0864 . Families are welcome to contact Fami
