Medicaid Bill SB2951
The Governor signed SB2951, our Medicaid bill on early treatment, this morning! What an amazing accomplishment we made this year, thanks to everyone’s efforts.
Upon federal approval of the two pilots in the bill, Illinois will be the first state in the country to cover through Medicaid a team-based treatment model tailored specifically for adolescents and young adults in the early stages of a serious mental health condition; and substance use clinical treatment provided in-home or in-community rather than a clinic setting to help with everyday life triggers that may cause re-use.
It’s time to celebrate!
