THE NEW MEDICAID MANAGED CARE PROGRAM, NAMED "HEALTHCHOICE ILLINOIS," IS SCHEDULED TO BEGIN LAUNCHING ON JANUARY 1, 2018

As you are probably aware, the Managed Care Program for Illinois residents enrolled in Medicaid is being revamped. The upgraded Managed Care Program, named HealthChoice Illinois, is scheduled to begin launching on January 1, 2018. The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) is issuing a series of Provider Notices to help you understand the coming changes.

Please review the first four Provider Notices here (all four are dated 10/30/2017).

We encourage you to sign up to receive relevant provider notices from HFS, including additional notices about managed care. You can subscribe to HFS Provider Notices by entering your e-mail address at https://www.illinois.gov/hfs/MedicalProviders/notices/Pages/ProviderEmailSubscribe.aspx and selecting your provider type from the list. You will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription, which you must do in order to complete the process.
