Hi blog readers Jenn here from the communications team, just a quick update for the day. You have probably heard that the Governor’s plan to reform Medicaid has been proposed and includes a provision which would entirely eliminate Illinois Cares Rx . Amidst all the hoopla and uproar (including our own)  I just wanted to draw your attention to a couple of things.
First thing: Contact your legislators now and tell them to protect this vital program while negotiations are still happening. Before they get ideas down on paper, before they go one step further, call 1-888-616-3322 them and tell them:
Preserve Funding for Illinois Cares Rx
Second Thing: In case you haven’t already picked up your phone to contact your legislators here’s a video to get you moving…
Third thing: It’s easy to get lost in the numbers and not focus on the people. Here’s a real life story we received today on the importance of Senior Programs in Illinios. There are thousands more just like it.
In the time it took you to read/watch all that you could have made the call. Now go call 1-888-616-3322 and tell your friends to do the same!
