About Us

IlliniCare Health is…


Part of the Illinois’ Integrated Care Program. The Integrated Care Program is a program for older adults, and adults with disabilities, who are eligible for Medicaid, but not eligible for Medicare. We serve over 100,000 members in Cook, DuPage, Lake, Kane, Kankakee and Will counties. In 2013, IlliniCare Health expanded the Integrated Care Program to serve Boone, McHenry, Winnebago, Rock Island, Mercer and Henry counties.

Most recently, IlliniCare Health was selected by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services as one of the six Managed Care Organizations to participate in the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMAI) within the greater Chicagoland area.

Focused on health. As a health plan, our main goal is to provide our members with the best care. We want our members to achieve the highest possible levels of wellness, independence and quality of life. We do this by partnering closely with our providers so all members have a medical home. We have high standards of care, and ensure those standards are exceeded. We educate our members on preventive health. We work with community organizations to ensure our members have a strong network of support. We connect members to resources so they can get the extra help they need. We have a dedicated staff that works one-on-one with members to help them achieve their health goals.

Staffed by local, passionate employees. IlliniCare Health is comprised of local staff members, who are devoted to improving the health of the people we serve. Our staff is made up of doctors, nurses, behavioral health case workers and social workers. We employ the experts, because our members deserve the best. They have the experience and knowledge to help coordinate care for our members. They work to ensure our members get the best service and care to improve their overall health.

Dedicated to our community. IlliniCare Health is committed to doing more in the community we serve. We want to improve not only our members’ health, but the communities in which they live. Our staff-run program, the H.O.P.E Program (Helping Other People Everywhere) is one example of how IlliniCare Health employees work together to help the community.
