Illinois lawmakers are considering a bill to provide Medicaid coverage for new mothers for 12 months after birth, and to create a pilot program for low-income women in their first pregnancy that would offer in-home visits by nurses. A second bill would mandate teaching nurses and physicians about implicit bias in continuing education programs.
A bill allocating $55 million for Illinois critical access hospitals was signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker. The monies will allow the hospitals to hire more nurses and physicians and expand treatments and services.
