About Us

IlliniCare Health is…

One of the leading Medicaid health plans in Illinois, providing services under the Integrated Care Plan (seniors and persons with disabilities), the Family Health Plan (pregnant women and children) and those who are newly eligible for Medicaid under the ACA.  IlliniCare Health was one of six plans chosen to participate in the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMP) in the greater Chicago area, providing coordinated services for those individuals dually-eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.  In addition, IlliniCare Health was selected to provide the back office and operational infrastructure to CountyCare Health Plan – a Medicaid managed care plan of the Cook County Hospital and Health Care System. IlliniCare Health will also be offering plans on the 2015 Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace targeting low-income individuals who are seeking affordable, quality health coverage.

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.
