Hoosier Care Connect is the state’s program for Medicaid-eligible children and adults who have a disability, are blind or are aged 65 or older. Children in foster care, young adults transitioning from foster care, foster care alumni and children receiving adoption assistance may also be eligible. Hoosier Care Connect members cannot be enrolled in Medicare or in a home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver program, or reside in an institutional setting.
Hoosier Care Connect requires coordinated, person-centered care across the delivery system and care continuum with the goal of continued improvement of coordination of care to assist providers in improving quality of care and health outcomes, including improved clinical and functional status, enhanced quality of life, improved member safety, enhanced member autonomy and adherence to treatment plans.
