As you know, the State of Illinois now has a budget. During the budget impasse, we worked tirelessly with the State of Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) to provide interim relief and support to dentists who treat State of Illinois members. The State of Illinois recently sold $6 billion of bonds, $3.9 billion of which is going to replenish the Health Insurance Reserve Fund. We are pleased to announce that CMS is working to release dental claim funds, and Delta Dental of Illinois will make applicable claim payments to dentists by the end of November.
