We're suing the State

Attorneys from Legal Council for Health Justice, the Shriver Center, and Sidley Austin LLP filed in court on behalf of thousands of low-income people to enforce federal law and the State of Illinois’ agreement to process Medicaid applications in a timely fashion. The attorneys charge that the State is violating both federal law and an Illinois court order by significantly delaying Medicaid applications and denying residents access to health coverage.
