Illinois to decide on essential health benefits
CHICAGO — A public meeting next week will help determine which services should be covered by health insurance plans sold in Illinois.
Gov. Pat Quinn intends to choose a benchmark plan that will serve as a minimum standard by Sept. 30 to meet a federal deadline.
The national health law says 10 basic categories must be covered, such as emergency services, prescription drugs and maternity care. States have flexibility to determine a basic level of covered services and costs within those categories.
