The Indiana Medicaid Program provides medical benefits to low-income individuals without medical insurance or adequate medical insurance. The Federal government establishes general guidelines for the administration of Medicaid benefits. There are specific eligibility requirements for receiving Medicaid benefits in Indiana.

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.
