Medicaid Policy Home > State Plan Amendment Updates State Plan Amendment Updates

The Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) State Plans are Indiana's agreements with the federal government as to the design and operation of the Medicaid and CHIP programs, respectively. Indiana amends the state plans in order to inform the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of programmatic and financing changes and to secure legal authority for those changes, which ensures continued federal funding.  Pursuant to IC 12-15-1.3-17.5, OMPP also submits state plan amendments (SPAs) to the State Budget Committee for review.  Below are pending Medicaid and CHIP State Plan Amendments as well as links to state and federal resources for historical purposes.
