Beware of scams. Illinois will never ask you for money to renew or apply for Medicaid. Report scams to the OIG fraud report website or the Medicaid fraud hotline at 1-844-453-7283/1-844-ILFRAUD.

The Medicaid Technical Assistance Center (MTAC)

  • MTAC is a partnership between Illinois Healthcare and Family Services and the University of Illinois’ Office of Medicaid Innovation.

  • The Act describes the role of MTAC as:

“The Medicaid Technical Assistance Center shall operate as a cross-system educational resource to strengthen the business infrastructure of health care provider organizations in Illinois to ultimately increase the capacity, access, health equity, and quality of Illinois' Medicaid managed care program, HealthChoice Illinois, and YouthCare, the Medicaid managed care program for children and youth who receive Medicaid health services through the Department of Children and Family Services.” [305 ILCS 75, Sec. 185-10]

  • MTAC is being designed to help health care providers of all types, sizes, and levels of business ability successfully participate in the Illinois Medicaid program, by offering:

  • Provider Supports, like training, personalized technical assistance, and up-to-date web resources. Whether you’re already serving Illinois Medicaid recipients or only starting to explore the Medicaid possibilities, we want MTAC to help you find your way.
