Hospitals need advocates now more than ever​

The American health care industry is in the midst of profound transformation, much of it driven by legislative action. IHA represents Indiana hospital at the state and federal levels to advance sound health policies and to ensure that lawmakers understand how the decisions th​ey make impact the health of Hoosiers. We’ve worked hard to develop strong relationships with legislators—and we build on these relationships to advocate on behalf of our members.

As your voice at the Statehouse, IHA has:

  • Reformed the prior authorization process in the commercial market
  • Passed acceptance of national accreditation in lieu of annual state survey for purposes of hospital licensure
  • Partnered with former governor Mike Pence and his administration to launch HIP 2.0, which expands health care coverage for up to 400,000 uninsured Hoosiers

But we haven’t done it alone. Together, IHA and Indiana hospitals unite to show lawmakers how we care as an industry for our communities and the health of Hoosiers across the state.

How can you become an advocate?
