Health Care Council of Illinois Speaks Out Against Cuts


Governor Pat Quinn’s proposed cuts to Medicaid funding would represent Strike Three against many nursing homes in the state, according to an industry lobbying group.

 

The Health Care Council of Illinois says Illinois already has the lowest Medicaid reimbursement rates in the country, and is usually months behind schedule in making payments.

 

The group says Quinn’s proposal would represent an additional 15-percent cut, and that could force some nursing homes to close. It says the state’s focus should be on tightening eligibility rules and verifying eligibility, rather than cutting funding for providers.
