You can choose to get gift cards to places like iTunes, Google Play and more.
Who is CareSource?
CareSource is a managed health care plan. We work with Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) to serve Hoosier Healthwise (HHW) and Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) members in Indiana.
Hoosier Healthwise is a health care program for children up to age 19 and pregnant women that meet certain income requirements. The program covers at little or no cost medical care like:
- Doctor visits
- Prescription medicine
- Mental health care
- Dental care
- Family planning
The Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) covers adults age 19-64 whose incomes are less than 138% of the federal poverty level and are not eligible for Medicare or another Medicaid Plan. HIP requires you to make a minimal monthly contribution to your coverage based on the amount of your income. For more information about the Healthy Indiana Plan, visit the FSSA website.
How can I become a member of CareSource?
The state of Indiana decides if you are eligible for Hoosier Healthwise (HHW) or Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP). For more information, review the eligibility information on the FSSA website.
