Long-term care now part of state Medicaid program
State officials say Illinois is moving toward the second phase of a new program for those in the Medicaid system.
The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services made the announcement. Officials say starting today there will be new services for more than 40,000 people in the Integrated Care Program. Those services include nursing home care and home and community-based care.
State officials say they hope the program saves government money and offers better care.
The first phase of the program focused on standard services like specialist care, lab work, mental health care and substance abuse. The second phase adds long-term care services.
The third phase is expected to launch in 2014 for those with developmental disabilities.
