We recently updated you on the problems that are plaguing the IL Medicaid system, and SNAP (food stamps) program, thanks to a glitchy program that Illinois purchased from Deloitte, and also thanks to understaffing of caseworkers in the IL Department of Human Services.
Coming soon! As we continue to work on this issue, we will keep you updated. Our co-worker, Ashley Buckley, has been doing deep research into this issue and how this situation came about, and what other states have experienced (hint: Illinois is not alone in its problems with Deloitte’s system). We will post that research soon. We’ll let you know when it is available.
Claudia Lennhoff Executive Director Champaign County Health Care Consumers
Have you heard or read about this? There are serious problems with the Medicaid system in Illinois, leaving communities – and organizations like Champaign County Health Care Consumers – to pick up the pieces in order to help consumers who need their coverage, and access to care.
Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) celebrated 42 years of organizing for health care access and justice at our 2019 Annual Awards Dinner on Friday, May 3, 2019. With nearly 200 people in attendance, the Dinner was a great success and a wonderful time.
