Hoosier Assurance Update
The Hoosier Assurance Plan (HAP) is the State of Indiana's program for funding public behavioral health services. It was effective July 1996 for those with chronic addiction problems; July 1997 for children with serious emotional disturbances; and July 1999 for adults with serious mental illnesses.
We feel the HAP is significantly underfunded to met the needs of the population. Hamilton Center continues to provide services to people who are "unfunded." Although our organization is under no obligation to provide services beyond those being reimbursed by the State, our Mission drives us to continue to provide services to those in need in our community as resources are available.
In fiscal year 2005, Hamilton Center served 6,031 clients who were HAP eligible. Of those clients, 3,100 were paid for by the State of Indiana; 2,931 clients received services for which there was no reimbursement.
