Illinois House Approves Medicaid for Low Income Adults Without Children


The Illinois House has approved a major expansion of the Medicaid program, allowing coverage to be extended to low-income adults who do not have children living at home.

 

The expansion is a key portion of President Obama’s health care law.

 

Up to half-a-million Illinoisans would be eligible for coverage if Governor Pat Quinn signs the measure into law.

 

The federal government will pay the cost for the first three years, but critics worry about the price tag for the state after that.
