Statement on the signing of SB 1321, the Medicaid Omnibus Bill

Obtaining and retaining health coverage should be easy for our neighbors who depend on it.

With the signing of SB1321 – the Medicaid Omnibus bill – we now have strong provisions directing the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to streamline and simplify the redetermination process so that fewer Illinois families will fall through the cracks.

Thank you to Governor Pritzker and his staff, Senator Steans, Leader Harris and other champions in the General Assembly for your vision and taking the steps necessary to build a health care system that works for all Illinoisans.

Our communities will be healthier and more stable as a result.
