Medicaid is a medical assistance program funded by the state and federal governments.  If you are covered under this program, through Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) or one of the Medicaid managed care payors, please provide an eligibility card for each month of services.  

Effective April 1, 2018, the State of Illinois has a new Medicaid Managed Care program called HealthChoice Illinois. This program is available to Medicaid patients in all counties within Illinois, including the Memorial service area.

Memorial Medical Center will only accept these new Medicaid Managed Care plans:

  • Blue Cross Community Health Plans
  • IlliniCare Health
  • Meridian HealthCare
