Managed Care Organization Resources

IHA is working to ensure Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) perform well for patients. Our policy experts monitor MCO activities and issues for opportunities for greater accountability and efficiency. 

MCOs are tasked with improving performance, quality and patient outcomes. Oversight, transparency and accountability for these goals are top priorities for IHA and our members, as Illinois seeks to move most Medicaid enrollees into MCOs.
