Feds Approve Illinois Managed Care Plan
The initiative is a partnership between Illinois and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Illinois is the fourth state to get approval for such a demonstration project, aimed at providing better care at lower costs for a group of patients known as "dual eligibles." The federal agency announced its approval Friday.
Dual eligibles account for a high proportion of spending in Medicaid. In 2010, for example, they made up about 9 percent of the population and 27 percent of the costs of the program.
