Hoosier Care Connect members reassigned to Anthem and MHS
As of April 1, 2017, all Hoosier Care Connect (HCC) members
previously enrolled with MDwise will have been reassigned to either
Managed Health Services (MHS) or to Anthem. As announced in Indiana
Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) bulletin BT201713,
MDwise is no longer a health plan option under the Hoosier Care
Providers are reminded they must check member eligibility and
managed care entity (MCE) assignment through the IHCP eligibility
verification system (EVS) - either through the Provider Healthcare
Portal or through the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system.
Providers cannot rely on or require member identification cards as
verification of IHCP eligibility or proof of MCE assignment.
If there is any question regarding a member's status, providers
may contact Anthem at 1-844-284-1798 or MHS at 1-877-647-4848.
Anthem and MHS are working cooperatively with MDwise, providers,
and members to make this transition as smooth as possible and to
ensure that member services are not interrupted.
