Gov. Pritzker Signs Legislation to Increase Medicaid Reimbursement!

dollar Governor Pritzker signed legislation earlier this week that includes an additional $150 million in funding intended to boost physician Medicaid reimbursements. Accordingly, we expect this will result in an increase in the Medicaid physician fee schedule.

The legislation also includes a new hospital assessment program that will increase funding for hospitals, and a healthcare omnibus package covering a variety of issues, including the requirement that the Illinois Department of Insurance and HFS study how state government can help people who lack health insurance.

This bill had passed the General Assembly during the fast and furious abbreviated spring legislative session in May.

If you have questions, please contact ISMS Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Erin O'Brien at 312-580-6488.
