(UNDATED) - Hoosier advocates say the Indiana General Assembly and Governor Pence aren't making healthcare a priority for low income residents.

Indiana Coalition for Human Services Mark Fairchild says they're keeping the pressure on the Governor to finalize a plan to expand coverage.

The group is among a coalition that delivered 10,000 signatures to the Governor's office.

Fairchild says they'll also hold a Statehouse Day rally this coming Monday morning. He says the Governor needs to accept the federal funding that will cover 400,000 Hoosiers who remain without coverage.

Fairchild says the Governor is holding onto elements of the Healthy Indiana Plan that the federal government isn't likely to accept as part of the Affordable Care Act. He says Indiana remains one of the few states that still hasn't allowed true healthcare expansion for all.
