When time is tough, even a small problem becomes too big to handle and solution also looks like a problem. Same situation could be implied in Illinois where medical authorities are working endlessly to transform the $14 billion Medicaid plan as per the region's requirement.
The major problem has been posed by people considered as guardians of health plans: physicians and hospitals. They are not accepting the Medicaid managed care and are showing reluctance in doing that. Not only this, they are not even getting agreed to sign a contract which included two plans. These plans, assigned by Aetna Better Health and IlliniCare Health Plan, are meant to look after people with disability.
Both the plans would not only benefit patients, but will also support medical care providers. The adoption of these plans would make sure that specialists get money on time, and there is no delay in payment as it was in old Medicaid plan.
When asked about the resistance, doctors said they had tried their best earlier also, but they did not receive fruitful results and were not able to match up with said guidelines.
