Undated (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Indiana has a vested interest in how the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the new health care reform law on Thursday.
This ruling could impact a program in the Hoosier state.
For the past year and a half, state officials have been planning a health insurance exchange but have put off implementing it because it could still come under federal control if the U.S. Supreme Court upholds the federal law.
An earlier request by Governor Mitch Daniels to expand the state's health savings account plan to cover more Medicaid recipients was denied by federal officials. The federal officials said the request was premature.
About 13 percent of Indiana's population is uninsured.
