Over A Billion Dollars Cut From Medicaid

Illinois lawmakers have voted to slash well over a billion dollars from the state’s Medicaid program, but Governor Pat Quinn says their work isn’t done yet.


The one-point-six billion in reductions will drop thousands of people from eligibility, eliminate some programs entirely, including a prescription drug plan for seniors, and intensify efforts to make sure anyone receiving Medicaid is entitled to it.


But Quinn says lawmakers also need to approve a cigarette-tax increase in order to provide the rest of the money needed to stabilize Medicaid.
