FSSA Secretary Mitch Roob addressed a joint meeting of the House and Senate health committees yesterday. He took the opportunity to give an update on the progress of the plan to those legislators who worked the hardest to make Governor Daniels' Health Indiana Plan a reality.

Applications for Indiana's new insurance program for low-income Hoosiers are coming in faster than the state can process them.

Since the Healthy Plan went live Jan. 1, more than 21,000 Hoosiers have applied for it. To date, a little more than 6,000 of those applications have been processed by the state Family and Social Services Administration.

"We think that's just remarkable."
