HFS to Proceed with Health Benefits for Immigrant Adults, Seniors Redetermination Process

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) will begin annual redeterminations, or eligibility verifications, for Health Benefits for Immigrant Adults (HBIA) and Health Benefits for Immigrant Seniors (HBIS) program enrollees. This process will mirror the redetermination process used in the traditional Medicaid program to ensure those enrolled remain eligible. In addition, to further clarify program eligibility requirements, HFS has filed amended emergency rules. HFS remains committed to operating these programs to provide health coverage for eligible individuals who meet income eligibility requirements for the program and have no alternative coverage options.
