Pence restores $37 million to Medicaid budget

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed off on a plan that will give healthcare providers who see Medicaid patients an extra $37 million a year. The move reverses cuts made in 2010.

The two percent increase will help hospitals, nursing homes and other health centers to bring back much needed services.

Some of those services coming back include dental and vision coverage. As well as lab work, radiology, speech and hearing therapy.

To be part of the program, providers will have to give up five percent of costs funding a $1100 health savings account.

The governor says it all comes after continued federal Medicaid cuts and would be an incentive for more providers to help Hoosiers.

He added the state is able to do this because of its increased financial status.
