Illinois is working on a House bill that would prompt the Illinois auditor general to examine Medicaid insurers.

The bill has more than 60 co-sponsors and was initiated because “there has been little information disseminated to the General Assembly” about how the state’s Medicaid managed-care program has fared financially and clinically. About 2/3 of Illinois’ 3.1 million Medicaid beneficiaries are now in a managed-care plan.

The Illinois Health and Hospital Association supports the new house bill and a separate state senate bill that promotes oversight and transparency of the Medicaid program. IHA spokesman Danny Chun said that bill, which passed the Senate and now awaits a vote in the House, is a “collaborative” effort among legislators, the state Medicaid agency, providers and insurers.  Source: “Modern Healthcare.”
