The State of Illinois has not passed a 2015/2016 budget and therefore has stopped funding claims payment specifically for the Quality Care Health Plan/ State of Illinois retirees membership, account #3181456. Their ID cards are attached (front and back):
This lack of funding means they are not paying for services provided by our physicians, and hospitals for their members. This lack of action on the part of the Illinois legislators has created a non-compliance issue in our contract with Cigna. Lakeland Care Network physicians may now require payment at the time of service, and send these patients bills for any unpaid, historical claims. The decision to do so is up to each individual physician/practice.
Any question or concerns please contact Monica Roney, Network Operations at 927-5207.
