According to Indiana Governor Mike Pence, the state has been granted a health-law waiver, which will temporarily allow it to oversee its own health insurance program. Indiana is the first state this year to be granted this exemption in regards to President Obama’s health-care law.

Many Republican states, including Indiana, opted to not participate in the federal government’s expansion of the Medicaid health program for the lower class and refused to allow citizens the availability to shop multiple insurance programs.

However, Indiana is the first of three states, including Iowa and Arkansas, to receive an official waiver from federal health-care laws and given permission to alter health programs that encompass federal statutes.

Indiana will use its waiver to extend the state’s current insurance program.
