Coverage: Illinois


In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding Illinois could receive for All Kids (the name for Illinois's SCHIP and Medicaid programs) if SCHIP is reauthorized with the full $50 billion in new federal funds. We also examine the effect this new money will have on Illinois's economy, measured in increased business activity, jobs, and wages. We found that, for a whole host of economic reasons, fully funding SCHIP in accordance with the budget resolution will be good for Illinois.
