Closer to New Medicaid Rules

It appears that the State of Illinois is getting closer to adopting new Medicaid rules for long-term care required by the federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.

More will be learned about the fate of these new rules at the next upcoming meeting of JCAR (Joint Committee on Administrative Rules) that will take place, Tuesday October 11, 2011 at the Bilandic Building in Chicago Illinois.

Once the rules adopted a  discussion about the affect of these rules on Illinois residents and long-term care facilities and providers will be posted.

Stay tuned.
