Provider Handbook

Under Illinois Health Connect, most people with an HFS medical card or All Kids medical card will select a Primary Care Provider (PCP) to manage their care, provide immunizations and other primary and preventive health care services, provide referrals for additional care when needed and help avoid unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations. IHC PCPs submit claims to the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) for reimbursement the same as they do for standard Medicaid fee-for-service patients. IHC PCPs can access the HFS Medical Provider handbooks to view policies and procedures needed to receive reimbursement for covered services, funded or administered by HFS, which are provided to eligible Illinois Medicaid participants. The handbooks provide detailed descriptions and instructions about covered services as well as fee-for-service billing instructions.
