Indiana State Specific Strategies

Indiana passed legislation in May 2007 that, in addition to the programs listed above, accomplished the following things: 

  • A tax credit to employers that establish a Section 125 plan. For employers who do not offer a fully insured health plan that satisfies Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Service code, the state will provide the lesser of $50 per employee or $2,500 for two years if the employer establishes a Section 125 plan.
  • Offer small employers (2-100 employees) a tax credit up to 50 percent of the cost of a qualified wellness program.
  • Allows certain small employers to join together to purchase health insurance.
  • Expands the definition of 'dependent,' allowing parents to cover their children up until the age of 24 upon policyholder request.
