How might Illinois fare in the proposed changes to Affordable Care Act? The Governor says it bears watching but he says that the current health care act is anything but affordable. The state has a number of residents taking part in some kind of federal healthcare, about 1 in 4 citizens are on Medicaid. And the state’s getting more than $14 billion to support the program.
The plan from House Republicans would possibly reduce the amount of funds the state gets to run Medicaid.
