Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has released a five-year plan to restructure Illinois’ Medicaid program.

If approved by the federal government the “Path to Transformation” would allow the state to obtain $5.2 billion in federal funds over five years to update the state’s health care infrastructure.

The proposal is supposed to create more supportive housing for Medicaid clients and to consolidate nine programs that now serve different categories of disabled people.

Quinn’s office says it would shorten waiting list for services to the disabled, expand mental health and addiction treatment services, and lower long-term costs.
