Illinois seeks ‘bold change’ in mental health treatment

From the Daily Herald:

Illinois wants to pursue a new approach when it comes to Medicaid spending that supporters say will improve its treatment of mental health and substance abuse patients.

If the state’s application for a waiver to federal Medicaid rules is approved, $2.7 billion would be invested in a five-year span into integrating physical and mental care, and helping patients lead more stable lives.
