Effective January 1, 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides medical coverage to individuals who lose medical coverage as a result of aging out of (exiting) foster care at the age of 18 or older. Public Act 98-0104 authorizes the Department to provide medical coverage under the provisions of ACA. This coverage is limited to individuals who aged out of foster care provided by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and received federally funded Medicaid while in foster care.
