Statewide Coalition

Medicaid and the ACA are at grave risk in the coming months. A statewide coalition has been formed to coordinate our collective activities.


The coalition is hoping to identify potential partners within CBHA’s membership. They are interested in a broad range of participation, from simply joining the coalition to planning joint advocacy events.


If your organization or members of your staff are interested in joining the coalition, they have provided a link that will take you to a webpage to join the coalition. Click here to access the Protect Our Care Illinois coalition webpage.
