Governor Pence is taking his fight to expand the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) to the nation's capital.

Pence met with Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius Friday.

His office says they discussed a waiver the state submitted to extend and expand the plan's coverage. The hope is to use HIP as an alternative to traditional medicaid.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services extended the plan through this year last September.
