The federal government is investigating a backlog of Medicaid health benefit applications in Indiana.
More than 80,000 Hoosiers had their applications stuck in limbo since May.
Indiana was one of 13 states to receive a letter from federal investigators asking about the backlog.
Indiana Medicaid program officials say that they are making progress in catching up and have already reduced the pile of applications by half.
Problems have been blamed on technical difficulties in communicating with federal officials and new federal guidelines in calculating incomes of Medicaid applicants.
Another problem was large amounts of workers away from their desks for training in Obamacare guidelines.
