Daily Whale coverage of Illinois’s 1115 Waiver application

Margie Schaps was interviewed and quoted by Yana Kunichoff in a Daily Whale article about the 1115 Waiver application. Daily Whale’s Yana Kunichoff writes, “Most advocates have applauded Quinn for looking at big-picture issues related to Medicaid. ‘I think Illinois has developed a fabulous waiver, with the potential to transform in a positive way the health of the people who receive Medicaid,’ said Margie Schaps, executive director of the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, which helped round up opinions on the plan from other stakeholders. ‘They’re trying to make the kinds of improvements we’ve never seen before.’”
