Cook County Hospital CEO explores CountyCare extension

Cook County Health and Hospitals System CEO Ramanathan Raju said that he met this week with U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and asked the senator to help extend some form of federal support for CountyCare, an ambitious, federally-funded Medicaid benefits program that expires in January.

“We are basically saying that after the CountyCare demonstration ends we want to continue it in some form,” Raju said on Thursday in an address to the CCHHS board. “We should not dismantle this infrastructure.”
