Find a Provider

    Find a Provider

    Doctors, hospitals and other health care facilities have the option to participate in and provide services under many different insurance programs.  Many doctors will accept only certain types of private insurance; they may decide to provide or not to provide services for those who have Medicare or Medicaid.

    If you are new to Medicaid, use our provider search to determine whether your current doctor or hospital participates in the Medicaid program you are enrolled in.  If your doctor is not available under your program, you will need to choose a new one.

    Please remember that if you are enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise, Care Select or the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), you will need to choose a Primary Medical Provider (PMP) within your health plan.

    If you are looking for a specialist and are in a managed health plan, you may need a referral from your PMP before Medicaid will pay for certain services. Please check with your PMP or your health plan before seeking additional services.

    Ordering, Prescribing, and Referring Providers

    The law requires that services, supplies, and medications received by a Medicaid member be ordered or prescribed by a provider who is enrolled in Medicaid in order for Medicaid to pay.  This means if you go to a doctor who is not enrolled in Medicaid and that doctor:

    • writes you a prescription,
    • refers you for lab work,
    • gives you an order for medical supplies or equipment, or
    • refers you to another provider for services,

    Medicaid cannot pay for that prescription, lab work, supply, or other service. Your pharmacy, lab, supplier, or other provider may not be willing to provide those services without payment from you first.

    If your doctor is not enrolled, you can tell them Medicaid will not pay for the services they are requesting for you. Explain that Indiana Medicaid has made it simple for doctors who may see only a few Medicaid  patients to enroll. Suggest they go to the Ordering, Prescribing, or Referring Provider website or call 1-800-577-1278 for more information.
