We Are More+

We are MORE

Since IlliniCare Health was founded, we have been MORE to our members by providing care and services that go beyond the basic requirements of a health plan.


IlliniCare Health strives to create INNOVATIVE solutions in the hopes of creating positive outcomes for our members, our community, and IlliniCare Health.


IlliniCare Health aims to be COLLABORATIVE with community stakeholders in order to provide exceptional care and services to our members.

Transforming the health of the community, one person at a time

IlliniCare Health is a managed care organization founded in 2011 that is contracted with the state of Illinois to provide healthcare services to the Medicaid and Medicare populations. In 2014, IlliniCare Health launched a variety of commercial health insurance plans, which are available for purchase on the Health Insurance Marketplace. We aim to improve healthcare outcomes and quality of care; partner with providers; and control costs.

Thresholds + IlliniCare Health: Ruthie's Story

Ruthie was in and out of the hospital since 1984 due to a combination of drug abuse and unmanaged behavioral health issues. These issues were exacerbated by the fact that Ruthie was homeless. Thresholds and IlliniCare Health connected with Ruthie to set-up a stable living situation for her and establish a personalized healthcare plan. Since she was connected by our partnership, Ruthie has not been admitted to the hospital once.

Ruthie’s story is one of many. Since the start of the partnership, Thresholds has seen admissions to the hospital drop by 50%. The Thresholds + IlliniCare Health partnership is just one example of implementing innovative solutions to tough problems.
