Medicaid reform is one of the biggest issues facing lawmakers this year but John Coburn with Health and Disability Advocates says lawmakers should be careful not to slash programs like Illinois Cares Rx.

The program helps cover deductibles and co-payments for their Medicare Part D plan, which could otherwise be out of reach for them.  The program took a big cut last year and Coburn says it simply can't be cut any further.  He says investing in prescription access now avoids greater costs later.
