Illinois governor signs bill to restore Medicaid dental, podiatry cuts

from The Associated Press via The State Journal-Register

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed a law that would restore some Medicaid cuts the state made in 2012 and could give Illinois access to about $2.4 billion in federal money over the next few years. The new law seeks about $400 million in federal matching funds for the approximately 349,000 new Medicaid sign-ups in Illinois under the Affordable Care Act expansion. The other money would come from extending the state's hospital assessment programs over four years. Illinois hospitals pay a tax to the state for federal Medicaid matching funds and that money gets redistributed to health care providers. more
