(Springfield, IL) — Governor Bruce Rauner is threatening to stop payments to healthcare providers for state workers and anyone else covered by the state’s group insurance plan. The “State Journal-Register” reports state officials claim they will no longer have the legal authority to continue to pay vendors in the near future as Illinois continues to operate without a budget in the new fiscal year. The state has recently stopped payments to dentists for their services to state workers, university employees and retirees.
