Series description:

Since 2015, several hundred thousand Hoosiers have gained health coverage through the expanded Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP). This six-part series asks: How are HIP’s values of personal responsibility, wellness, and empowerment working for members, providers, and our state? How can congregations, providers, and nonprofits improve HIP’s operations through their values of community responsibility, neighborly outreach, social advocacy, and excellent care?
