Costs Associated with State's Health Care Program for Undocumented Citizens Getting Attention

An attempt is being made to reign in the costs connected to the state’s healthcare program for undocumented citizens.


The state will pause new enrollments on July 1st. Governor JB Pritzker has backed the program, but cost containment has become a concern. He said prior to the announcement of restrictions that it needed to be managed to keep costs under control.



Co-pays are also going to be a part of the healthcare coverage, with hospitals being allowed to charge a $100 for an emergency room visit.
