Illinois Pharmacies Blaming Medicaid For Financial Trouble
(Undated) — The Illinois Pharmacists Association says low Medicaid reimbursements from the state are putting pharmacies out of business. Eleven Illinois pharmacies have closed since April, when the state launched a new system through which pharmacists have to apply for Medicaid reimbursements. One pharmacist told reporters with WICS that in some cases, Medicaid is paying pharmacies less than a dollar for some prescriptions. The state legislature is expected to discuss the issue this month.
