City Contacting Tens of Thousands Over Medicaid Option for Insurance Enrollment


There is another snag in Illinois in the troubled health insurance enrollment process.

 

State officials are contacting thousands of people and advising them to start over on their applications if they think they were referred to Medicaid by mistake.

 

Some 30,000 applicants have been steered toward Medicaid… but some are complaining and want to be in the private insurance marketplace instead.

 

Even though Medicaid is less expensive than private coverage, it often has severe limits on what doctors can be seen.

 

Some Illinois doctors won’t even take new Medicaid patients. Monday is the deadline to sign up for private coverage and have it take effect by January 1st.
