Illinois to Begin Implementing State’s Proposal to Integrate Medicare and Medicaid Funding

The Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office in CMS negotiated a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Illinois to begin implementing the state’s proposal to integrate Medicare and Medicaid funding and to coordinate health and long term care for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who reside in an institution or who receive home and community based services through a waiver are excluded from the project.
