On June 5, 2019 Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the budget into law. The budget makes an interesting change to the financing of the Illinois Medicaid program, one that will be worth watching for its effect on the overall Illinois health care landscape.
Health care is emerging as a hot topic in the Illinois legislature, where almost 6,000 new bills are expected to be filed by mid-February. Understanding Illinois’ unique legislative process is the key to knowing what to expect in the 2018 legislative season.
