THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS GIVING ILLINOIS APPROVAL TO LAUNCH A NEW TWO BILLION DOLLAR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH INITIATIVE. 
 
GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER SAYS THE BETTER CARE ILLINOIS PROGRAM WILL MAKE THE STATE A NATIONAL LEADER IN HEALTH SERVICES. IT WILL FOCUS ON PREVENTATIVE AND COMMUNITY BASED CARE FOR ALL AGES.
 
 
THE INITIATIVE IS POSSIBLE THANKS TO A FEDERAL WAIVER FOR ILLINOIS TO USE MEDICAID DOLLARS FOR 10 PILOT PROGRAMS THAT GOVERNOR RAUNER SAYS WILL LOWER COSTS BUT IMPROVE QUALITY OF CARE.
 
 
THE IDEA IS TO ADDRESS A PERSON’S WHOLE WELL BEING BY INTEGRATING RESOURCES AND CARE OPTIONS.
