FSSA seeks input on hybrid system

“Suggestions from advocates, caseworkers, and especially clients will be the key to developing a hybrid system that works,” said FSSA Secretary Anne Murphy. “While we have learned many lessons from the flawed concepts of the modernized system, input from Hoosiers who use the system will provide fundamental insight going forward.”
On October 15, Governor Mitch Daniels announced the termination of the contract the State of Indiana held with IBM for the delivery of welfare services. In its place, FSSA will implement a hybrid system that will incorporate successful elements of the old welfare delivery system and what is known as the modernized system. The hybrid will include more face-to-face contact and more localized team-based case management.
