Rod Blagojevich's health care plan, All Kids, cited for widespread abuse
An audit of the All Kids health insurance program reveals state health care agencies have widespread problems managing millions of taxpayer dollars largely spent on benefits for undocumented immigrants.
Auditors found people getting benefits beyond age cut offs, no verification of whether enrolled children live in Illinois, conflicting policies on family income and misclassified immigrants, some of whom could be legal and eligible for federal health care dollars but instead are paid solely with state money.
The list of shortcomings unearthed in former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's vaunted health care plan goes on to include claims being covered even though families stopped paying premiums and a lack of documentation on a multimillion-dollar marketing campaign.
