Updated: Illinois Attestation for Medicaid Payment Increase? We Are a Go

Earlier this week, I posted that the State health service of Illinois had not published how doctors could complete the attestation required to qualify for the medicaid payment increase.

Well, the next day I received an email that read:

Dear Illinois Health Connect Providers, The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services has posted a new Provider Notice to the Physicians Provider Notices page. You may also view the Physicians Provider Notices page from the link below. http://www.hfs.illinois.gov/physicians/

Regards, Illinois Health Connect Provider Services Department

The attachment included in the email can be found by clicking on the link: Increased Payment for Primary Care Services

You have until the end of the month to complete the attestation. Don’t delay.


  1. Could you go write a similar article for the other ~40 states who haven’t published any info yet?


    • As much as I’d like to believe it was my blog post that triggered the letter, I’m sure that I didn’t have anything to do with this.
