IL Department of Healthcare and Family Services announces Health Alliance Connect Medicaid member transition plan

According to a plan developed by the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), Health Alliance Connect Medicaid coverage will end in two phases, beginning in northern Illinois on October 31 and in central Illinois on December 31. Members will be moved back to standard Medicaid fee-for-service until they choose a new plan or are assigned to a new plan. No one will lose Medicaid eligibility because of this change.

You will get a letter from Health Alliance Connect, followed by an enrollment packet from Illinois Client Enrollment Services with important information about all your health plan options and directions for how to enroll. You will have 60 days to choose a new health plan and primary care provider (PCP). If you do not choose a health plan and PCP, HFS will choose for you. You can call your current PCP offices to find out what other plans they accept.

If you need healthcare services after your Health Alliance disenrollment date but before you’re enrolled in a new health plan, you should bring your HFS medical card to the pharmacy and to doctor visits. If you have questions, call us at 1-877-633-2526 (TTY 711).
