General Provider Services

If you're an Indiana Medicaid provider - regardless of your provider category or specialty - this section is for you. It links you to information that helps make doing business with the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) easier. You'll find details about billing, free provider workshops, forms, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), how to submit claims electronically, and more. Select a topic from the menu on the left or the following list.

Getting Assistance

Contact information for each field consultant is available on the Provider Relations Field Consultants page.

Providing Services

Our goal is to make doing business with Medicaid as efficient as possible. In this section, you'll find links to more detailed information about:

  • Verifying members' eligibility--It takes more than a Hoosier Health Card or even a prior authorization. Find the tools you need at Eligibility Verification.
  • Obtaining prior authorization.
  • Monitoring members' Medicaid use--The Right Choices Program (RCP) monitors members' Medicaid utilization and, when appropriate, implements restrictions for members who use services more extensively than their peers.
  • Finding other Medicaid providers--search by specialty, address, institution, and more at Provider Search.

Billing and Remittance

As a Medicaid provider, what's the best way for you to submit claims to the IHCP? It's a big topic, and an important one. In this section, you'll find links to answers, from provider code sets to fee schedules to a list of explanations of benefits (EOBs). Whether you're new to Medicaid or have been a provider for years, this section is designed to help answer your billing questions. For more complete information about billing and submitting claims, see Chapter 8 of the IHCP Provider Manual.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Solutions

Electronic transactions must be HIPAA-compliant. The EDI Solutions page provides resources for providers and vendors.


The Manuals page contains links to the IHCP Provider Manual, manuals for specific programs, and companion guides.


Forms on the Forms page are available in Adobe Acrobat portable document format (pdf) unless otherwise indicated. If you do not already have Acrobat, please see the Web Tool Kit.

State Plan

Medicaid is a state-administered program, and each state sets its own guidelines regarding eligibility and services. The State Plan outlines how Medicaid is implemented in Indiana.
