As you know, HealthChoice Illinois is the new statewide Medicaid managed care plan. HFS is in the process of transitioning most Medicaid beneficiaries into a HealthChoice MCO plan. When the program is fully implemented (target date is July 2018), approximately 80% of all Illinois’ Medicaid population will be enrolled in one of the HealthChoice Illinois MCOs.
The enrollment process has already started. The Transition and Expansion Mail Schedule can be found here: https://www.illinois.gov/hfs/SiteCollectionDocuments/HealthChoiceIllinoisTransitionandExpansionMailScheduleFinalOct162017.pdf.
HFS has established an enrollment website: https://enrollhfs.illinois.gov/. The enrollment website is very user friendly and contains a lot of helpful information.
