Mental Health/Medical Resources
To apply for Medicaid, you will need to fill out and submit a Medicaid application, also known as an Indiana Application for Health Coverage. Once you submit your complete application, it will take up to 90 days to determine if you are eligible; however, many applications are reviewed in less time. You can check on the status of your application online by clicking on your county of residence or by calling 1-800-403-0864. You will need to have your case number to check the status of your application.
Indiana Medicaid pays for services for individuals who choose to remain in their home as an alternative to receiving services in an institution, such as a nursing facility. These services are referred to as home and community-based services. These programs are intended to assist a person to be as independent as possible and live in the least restrictive environment possible while maintaining safety in the home.
At FUSE we provide information, resources and support to families and individuals with disabilities or mental health needs. When families first learn that their child has a disability or a mental health care need, they often don’t know where to turn. As those children grow into adulthood, services and supports change, and families need to learn how to navigate new systems and services. We act as a guide with individuals and families to information and resources that help them meet their individualized needs and live a fulfilling life in their community.

Be Well Crisis Helpline- The free Be Well Crisis Helpline was established by FSSA’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction in direct response to the elevated levels of stress and anxiety Hoosiers are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has caused a rise in mental health-related issues across Indiana and the entire country, including new stresses brought on by social isolation and the lack of traditional support systems such as family, friends, schools, religious and other community organizations. For many Hoosiers, anxiety regarding financial stress, grief and loss over bereavement and the loss of one’s “normal routine,” along with all of the unknowns regarding COVID-19, is overwhelming.
“By calling 2-1-1 (and selecting 3), callers will connect with an experienced and compassionate counselor specially trained to help with issues triggered or worsened by COVID-19,” said Jay Chaudhary, J.D., DMHA director. “The trained counselors will be able to listen, provide support and promote personal resiliency.” The Be Well Crisis Helpline is funded by a Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In Indiana the program becomes part of the state’s new Be Well Indiana initiative. Additional information about the mental health resources available to Hoosiers is available at BeWellIndiana.org
