Two public hearings are scheduled this week on Gov. Mike Pence's plan to use Medicaid funds to expand the Healthy Indiana Plan to provide health insurance to people with no coverage.

The Family and Social Services Administration says the hearings will be held Wednesday and Thursday on the state government campus in downtown Indianapolis. Wednesday's hearing begins at 9 a.m. in Conference Center Room B at the Indiana Government Center South. Thursday's hearing begins at 1 p.m. in Room 156-B at the Statehouse.

The FSSA also announced Friday that a draft of the proposed Medicaid waiver to pay for the HIP expansion and other related documents are posted on the Healthy Indiana Plan website.

The agency plans to submit the proposed waiver to federal officials in late June.
