Indiana reevaluates Medicaid eligibility post COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

INDIANA – The Medicaid enrollment and renewal process is changing for Hoosiers.

During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), Indiana received additional federal funding for individuals or households enrolled in Medicaid, with the condition that the state would not disenroll people during the PHE. Congress ended the continuous enrollment provision on March 31, 2023, and now Indiana is undergoing a year-long process of redetermining the eligibility of everyone enrolled in Medicaid during the PHE.

A major concern is that people who are still eligible for Medicaid coverage will lose it because they haven’t returned their Medicaid redetermination packet to the State Medicaid agency. In many cases, people may not have even received theirs because the state doesn’t have the right mailing address.


Many people utilizing housing assistance from the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority are also enrolled in Medicaid for their health coverage. For people with Medicaid and CHIP Coverage:

  • UPDATE your contact information with your state Medicaid or CHIP agency
  • RESPOND to the Medicaid/CHIP renewal form when it arrives to keep your coverage
  • CONSIDER other coverage options if you are no longer eligible for Medicaid or Chip. Check if you have coverage through your employer,, or Medicare
