Health and Human Services cuts

Thursday, Aug 23, 2007

The governor has made a big deal out of saying he is cutting pork and waste so that he can fund some new health care initiatives, but he also made some health and human services cuts that might not go over so well in some sectors.

Again, the amount appropriated by the General Assembly is listed first, followed by the governor’s reduced amount, which is in bold type

* FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANCE UNDER THE ILLINOIS PUBLIC AID CODE, THE CHILDREN’S HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM ACT, AND THE COVERING ALL KIDS HEALTH INSURANCE ACT… For Hospital In-Patient, Disproportionate Share and Ambulatory Care….. 2,705,811,200 2,665,811,200 (That’s a $40 mil cut for hospitals)

For all other Skilled, Intermediate, and Other Related Long Term Care Services….. 743,513,8 693,513,800 ($50 million cut for nursing homes)

* For Grants to Oak Forest Hospital of Cook County………. 12,000,000 2,000,000

* appropriated to the Department of Human Services For State Transitional Assistance…… 11,500,000 11,000,000

    Am I reading this right? He’s cutting the budget for his precious All Kids program?

    Are you kidding me? Robbing Peter to pay Paul AGAIN. What an idiot. I am speechless.

    Rich, it’s a damn good thing you’re here to bring this to the forefront ASAP.

    After seeing this I can only surmise that Filan left on vacation in disgust. About all I have left to say is “Good Grief.”

    Ginger Ostrow ought to be ashamed of herself even participating in such garbage. This guy is such a fraud, he thinks nothing of hurting the most vulnerable in our society to play his game with MJM. I know he has no scrupples but how do the people around him sleep at night. Again Shame on You Ginger Ostrow.

    I take a look at this, and wonder how Emil Jones could support this crap. Then I realized that Emil Jones is a (insert your own choice word here).

    Any Democrat in the legislature who support the Governor’s cuts should be ousted in the next primary election.

    appropriated to the Department of Human Services For State Transitional Assistance…… 11,500,000 11,000,000
    This is why the state mental health centers are packed to the gills, remain understaffed, homeless and crime rate are up (thanks to Blago’s gang- AGAIN)! I could just SCREAM.


  7. - Downtrodden - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 6:21 pm:

    The Gov flat out lied - the majority of his cuts seem to be to the state agency budgets, not pork projects advocated by the members of the Gen Assembly. A sad day for government and an especially for human services.

    I wondered about the timing of Filan’s vacation too. Maybe he knew what was coming and decided to get out for awhile. I wouldn’t blame him. Let Blago explain his own mess.


  9. - s - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 6:41 pm:

    You guys need to relax -

    It looks like all that happened here was that they reduced all these amounts to the levels that they had been introduced in his budget earlier this year.

    Madigan padded a bunch of things above that amount (Like Long-Term Care, which got a huge increase where no other provider did).


  10. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 6:47 pm:

    Ah, but check the total vetoes post.

    And longterm care wasn’t the only provider with an increase. DASA, community based MH providers, and hospitals all got increases in the GA approved budget.


  11. - stallion - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 8:00 pm:

    Why such a large cut to Oak Forest Hospital? Thats 10 million more that Cook County is going to have to raise taxes to pay for. Guess Rod dont have to raise taxes, he will force everyone else to.


  12. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 8:01 pm:

    Also, I forgot DD’s COLA. All that stuff was right in front of you when you made that comment.


  13. - Gregor - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 8:31 pm:

    That’s it, Rod: hand over your keys, no more driving the government for you tonight. Somebody call Emil and tell himn to come pick this guy up.

    If Filan is smart, he’s going to extend that vacation and maybe upgrade to the witness protection program.


  14. - Crimefighter - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 8:42 pm:

    So Hot Rod has been singing that he can’t stop thinking about health care…and item vetoes health care…guess he lied about that too.


  15. - A Citizen - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 10:22 pm:

    Those pesky citizens with illnesses and disabilities, they just cost too much. Let’s just pretend they aren’t there. Heck maybe in a few months they’ll move to Indiana. There, problem solved.


  16. - steve schnorf - Thursday, Aug 23, 07 @ 11:32 pm:

    all the medicaid related cuts (AllKids, longterm care, etc) may well be going to be dealt with in payment cycle, not rate cuts or eligibility cuts.


  17. - Frank Sobotka - Friday, Aug 24, 07 @ 1:00 am:

    “FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANCE UNDER THE ILLINOIS PUBLIC AID CODE, THE CHILDREN’S HEALTH INSURANCE PROGRAM ACT, AND THE COVERING ALL KIDS HEALTH INSURANCE ACT… For Hospital In-Patient, Disproportionate Share and Ambulatory Care….. 2,705,811,200 2,665,811,200 (That’s more than $100 mil cut for hospitals)”

    Unless you are including something from somewhere else, that’s ‘only’ 40 million??
