Medicaid expansion could end early in Illinois under Senate Obamacare replacement bill

Roberta Rakove, Sinai Health System Senior Vice President for Strategy and Government Affairs, provided content for  the Chicago Tribune’s article, “Medicaid expansion could end early in Illinois under Senate Obamacare replacement bill” on June 22, 2017.

"Medicaid expansion is absolutely one of the best things that's happened to the Medicaid program in Illinois," said Roberta Rakove, senior vice president for strategy and external affairs for Sinai Health System, which operates Mount Sinai and Holy Cross hospitals. "We're opposed to ending the program at all, but (2021) is really just around the corner, and to have to deal with the end of the expansion that quickly, if we couldn't change the legislation, would be very serious.”
