Governor Mike Pence's administration discuses healthy Indiana plan
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Officials with Governor Mike Pence's administration were in Mishawaka Thursday.
They discussed the governor's ideas to expand the healthy Indiana plan to cover about 350,000 more Hoosiers.
The St. Joseph Regional Medical Center hosted a conversation about the future of health care in Indiana.
It comes after Pence announced his plans last week to advance private market based Medicaid reforms in Indiana.
"It's consumer oriented. It's prevention wellness focused, with incentives to do that. And I think, as a family physician and Commissioner of Health that’s better for health," said Indiana State Health Commissioner William Van Ness.
The plan is a consumer-driven health care coverage for low-income adults.
