According to a court filing on Monday, A U.S. judge should order Illinois to pay Medicaid providers about one billion dollars a month. The sum would ensure that medical care continues for the three million recipients of the health program after talks with the state reached an impasse. The move could force Illinois to stop making full payments on other state-mandated or court-ordered spending such as pensions and payroll, which the state is also having trouble paying now.
