The Department of Healthcare and Family Services is establishing an N.B. Stakeholder Subcommittee of the Medicaid Advisory Committee (MAC).
On January 16, 2018, United States District Judge Jorge L. Alonso approved the terms of the N.B. Consent Decree, which was agreed to by the state of Illinois and the Plaintiffs. The purpose of the Consent Decree is to design and implement a systemic approach through which all Medicaid-eligible children under the age of 21 in the State of Illinois, with reasonable promptness, will be provided the Medicaid-authorized, medically necessary intensive home and community-based services, including residential services, that are needed to correct or ameliorate their mental health or behavior disorders.
The Stakeholder Subcommittee will be asked to provide feedback and input on specific aspects of the Implementation Plan, as requested by HFS.
