IL Transforming Medicaid Program

Local News

Governor Rauner says the state is transforming its Medicaid program.

The goal is to provide better care and reduce costs.

As part of the plan the administration is moving to a competitive bidding process.

Leaders in Illinois say this will mean better care for more than 2 million people on the Medicaid Managed Care Program.

The state will accept bids this summer and award up to 7 contracts.

The new program starts in 2018.
