Coverage under HealthChoice Illinois, the state's new Medicaid managed care program, will be effective on April 1, 2018 for the majority of Medicaid clients residing in the 72 Illinois counties new to mandatory managed care. You are invited to attend a series of IHA member forums in January and February designed to assist hospitals in preparing for the significant changes to the Medicaid program under HealthChoice Illinois.


During these in-person meetings, IHA staff will provide background on Medicaid managed care in Illinois and outline changes to the program under the statewide expansion, including the new Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) contract awards. In addition, Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) staff will share information on program oversight, beneficiary communications and ongoing network development efforts by the MCOs, who have also been invited to send a senior level representative to participate in the forums. There will be time to ask questions of IHA and HFS staff and to network with your colleagues.

These forums may also be beneficial to your managed care and access and registration staff, who are invited to attend.
