I am heading up to Riverwoods to meet with advocates and discuss the new Medicaid
Transformation 1115 Waiver.
Friday the Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force will
meet at 1:00 in the Thompson Center, room 9-031.

Here is a chance to comment on the 1115 Waiver. You comments can be short like:

Health and Medicine Policy Research Group (HMPRG) would like to thank those
who were able to participate in the Illinois Medicaid 1115 Waiver Stakeholder
Engagement meetings last week.  Hundreds of stakeholders joined this
conversation both in-person and remotely to hear about and weigh-in on t

Associates’ (HMA) slides from last week’s meetings here.

As a reminder, one of the most important ways that you and your organization
