The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) is proposing a change in the methods and standards for setting payment rates for the Department of Human Services’ Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery providers.

The proposed change is effective for dates of service July 1, 2022 and after. The proposed change provides for an increase in the Medicaid reimbursement rates for outpatient substance use disorder services. The reimbursement rates in effect on June 30, 2022 will increase by 47% effective July 1, 2022.

This proposed change will result in an annual increase in Medicaid liability of $19.4 million for services provided through fee-for-service or through managed care organizations. The proposed change is subject to approval by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and may be modified or revised during the approval process.

Any interested party may submit questions or comments concerning these proposed changes in reimbursement methods and standards. All questions or comments must be submitted in writing within thirty (30) days of the publication date of this notice and addressed to:
