ATTENTION HFS Medical Card Holders

The Illinois Department of HealthCare and Family Services (HFS) require most individuals with an HFS Medical Card to pick a health plan for their care coordination services. The health plan you pick will provide you with all of your healthcare needs and help coordinate your care. Once enrolled, you will be enrolled with your health plan for 12 months. At the end of the 12 months, you will be able to pick a new health plan or stay enrolled with your current health plan. This is called your Open Enrollment period.

The health plans you may be required to pick go by the following names:

  • Managed Care Organization (MCO)
  • Managed Care Community Network (MCCN)

At the present time, Rochelle Community Hospital and our Family Healthcare providers contract with the following Health Plan(s) to provide services to our Medicaid patients:

  • Meridian Health Plans
  • Harmony Health Plan
  • Illinicare Health

When will you know if you can make a health plan choice or switch health plans?

The Illinois Client Enrollment Services will send you information about your health plan choices when it is time for you to make a health plan choice and during your Open Enrollment period.
