Medicaid Reform Takes Effect July 1st


More than 25,000 working parents in Illinois are about to get some bad news in the mail, they will be losing their state-provided health coverage at the end of this month.

 

The state has just now sent out notices to families whose coverage will expire on July 1st as part of the $2.7 billion Medicaid reform plan.

 

That plan tightens eligibility requirements for the Family Care program, meaning that families above 133-percent of the federal poverty rate, around $20,000 a year for a two-person household, will no longer qualify for coverage.
