Settlement of Cook County Medicaid Suit

See this article, which begins:

State officials agreed Monday to a multimillion-dollar upgrade in basic medical care given to Cook County's poorest children.

In settling a 13-year-old lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, the state agreed to provide greater reimbursements to doctors who accept Medicaid patients.

Many doctors turn away new Medicaid patients, because the amount physicians get for providing that care is far less than what they would get from private insurance companies, the suit claimed.
