The Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) recently announced Medicaid disability eligibility changes. Effective June 1, 2014, Indiana Medicaid changed the eligibility requirements for individuals who are aged, blind and disabled, as well as the Medicare Savings Program. These changes streamlined the eligibility/determination process, eliminated the unpopular spend down program and ultimately made health insurance coverage available to more low-income Hoosiers. More information is available on the FSSA Medicaid Disability Eligibility Changes webpage.
