Health Insurance

The Indiana Democratic Party teamed up with doctors to share stories about the impact the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, has had on Hoosiers. The partnership aims to rally support for the ACA, as it heads to the Supreme Court shortly after the election.

Indiana recently announced infant mortality rates are the lowest ever. Some counties like St. Joseph County say it’s too early to note exact changes at the local level, which are evaluated every five years. However, health officials in St. Joe County say focusing on a mother’s access to health care has been key to those results. 

As Indiana casinos reopen, they’re implementing sanitization and distancing standards at gaming sites, but some workers say one important virus-prevention strategy is being left out: access to affordable health insurance.

Hoosiers on Indiana’s Medicaid expansion program, HIP 2.0, will now have access to some benefits while they transition to insurance from a new employer.

After Rebecca and Bruce Austin gave birth to their daughter, they struggled to get pregnant again. So they signed up to become foster parents.

“I wouldn’t change it for anything,” says Rebecca, reflecting on the past nine years. 

 

 

Of the nine children the Austins have fostered, they adopted four and are still caring for a fifth. Their children range in age from 22 to 4. 

And the five still living at home see 14 doctors.
