Indiana Medicaid Reimbursement Rates Going Up

Share this post

Indiana Governor Mike Pence says the state will increase Medicaid reimbursement rates, starting this January, for the state’s health care providers who saw those rates drop three years ago as a cost-cutting measure. Indiana currently has 1-point-1 million Medicaid recipients. The 2010 reductions will be eliminated completely for providers on a number of services including dental, vision, medical transportation, lab and radiology, speech and hearing therapy, freestanding dialysis and medical supplies. Rates will be restored in part for other providers including hospitals, nursing facilities, home health care, immediate care and intellectual disability facilities.
“This decision is very important for our hospitals—it provides a more solid financial footing at this critical time given continued federal Medicare cuts,” said Doug Leonard, Indiana Hospital Association President. “This is even more significant considering hospitals in other states are facing even further Medicaid cuts while Indiana is able to reverse them.”
