Hearing set on FamilyCare coverage in Illinois

AP/Chicago Tribune, November 12, 2008

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich administration's decision to stop paying for most state-subsidized healthcare is up for discussion in Cook County Circuit Court. A hearing is set after the governor asked a judge to clarify an order to shut down an illegal expansion of the FamilyCare program. Court documents indicate state reimbursement to doctors stopped Oct. 15, the day a Cook County judge ordered the administration to stop an expansion of the program to people with higher incomes.
