Gov. Mike Pence has announced that he is undoing a series of Medicaid rate cuts that Indiana made during the recession. The state plans to spend $37 million more each year reimbursing providers.
The increase was provided for in the budget that was recently passed by the state legislature.
A Pence spokeswoman says that the increase would amount to 2 percent more for hospitals, nursing facilities, home health and immediate care providers.
Cuts in how much the state pays for dental, vision, medical transportation and other areas will be fully restored.
