Hoosier Care Connect members reassigned to Anthem and MHS health plans

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 Connect program.

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.
