OSF HealthCare and Health Alliance join forces

(Champaign, Ill. | Oct. 1, 2019) — OSF HealthCare and Health Alliance are entering a unique partnership to offer new Medicare Advantage health plans for Medicare beneficiaries in 17 central and northern Illinois counties. These plans are designed to further elevate health care and coverage, while serving the specific needs of patients throughout the state.

 

These OSF MedAdvantage plans will offer benefits such as free virtual visits, wellness benefits and no- or low-cost medications. The benefits are intended to serve the whole person, and also include dental, hearing and vision.

 

“To best serve Health Alliance communities, we continually evaluate partnerships and relationships with other organizations focused on the right care at the right time for patients. The partnership between OSF HealthCare and Health Alliance Medicare means our members will have even more options for receiving trusted care from the doctors and care teams they know,” said Jana Perry, Health Alliance vice president of Strategy and Marketing.

 

As Health Alliance grows, it remains committed to providing consumer-focused and integrated care by ensuring alignment with best practice. Affiliation with a provider-led health plan gives patients a simpler, more coordinated health care experience.

 

“The elevated arrangement between OSF HealthCare and Health Alliance Medicare is good for patients and their families, and good for both organizations,” said Bob Sehring, CEO, OSF HealthCare. “The 142 years of experience at OSF HealthCare fits well with the coverage expertise of member-focused Health Alliance. Together we will keep our communities healthy.”

 

The new partnership impacts 2020 coverage options for Medicare beneficiaries in Boone, Bureau, De Witt, Henderson, Henry, Knox, La Salle, Livingston, McLean, Marshall, Peoria, Putnam, Stark, Tazewell, Warren, Winnebago and Woodford counties. Medicare beneficiaries in these counties will be eligible to sign up for one of four new Medicare Advantage health plans through OSF MedAdvantage beginning October 15, 2019.

 

Medicare beneficiaries who wish to learn more about new coverage options may attend a free learning event at the location of their choosing. Numerous events will be held across impacted communities throughout October, November, and December. A complete schedule of free learning events, along with plan details is available now at OSFMedAdvantage.org.

College Changes Everything Month

OCTOBER IS COLLEGE CHANGES EVERYTHING MONTH® IN ILLINOIS


ISAC and Statewide Partners to Offer Free Support Throughout the Fall to Students and Families Navigating the College Application and Financial Aid Process

 

CHICAGO – Students and families are encouraged to take full advantage of the free financial aid and postsecondary planning resources available in their communities as part of College Changes Everything® (CCE) Month this October.  Launched by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) four years ago to support students and families who are completing their college applications and financial aid forms at the same time, ISAC is extending support for the CCE campaign to provide, with its partners, free workshops and activities throughout the entire fall.

 

“The fall is a busy and stressful time for students and families as they embark on a new school year, explore options for education and training after high school, and navigate the financial aid process all at once,” said Eric Zarnikow, executive director of ISAC. “What many families might not know is that there is free, expert support available throughout the state from high schools, ISAC, and community partners to help students make more informed postsecondary choices and access the financial aid for which they might be eligible. Whether a student is considering vocational training or is interested in a two or a four-year degree, there is free assistance available to help them.”

 

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), the form that determines eligibility for federal and some state and institutional financial aid, becomes available on October 1st for the 2020-21 school year. Because some state aid, such as the Monetary Award Program (MAP grant) is awarded on a first come, first-served basis, students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to have the opportunity to receive all the financial aid for which they might be eligible.

 

Between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, CCE activities will include free FAFSA completion and college application workshops, where students and families can fill out college applications and/or complete their FAFSAs right then and there, with direct assistance from college and financial aid experts. Almost 300 high schools in 215 towns and cities in Illinois have scheduled a college application and/or FAFSA Completion Workshop this fall, with more being scheduled every week. Students and parents can check directly with their high schools for events within their own school. Workshops will also be offered at public locations throughout Illinois, supported by the college and financial aid experts at ISAC and their partners.  Visit studentportal/isac.org/events to search by zip code for a free public event near you.

 

Those planning to attend a FAFSA Completion Workshop can check out this handy list of what to bring to the event https://studentportal.isac.org/student-resources/Bring-to-FAFSA-Completion.pdf.

Many statewide workshops are hosted or supported by the ISACorps, recent college graduates who are extensively trained to serve as near peer mentors to high school students navigating the college and financial aid process. The ISACorps also provide free one-on-one assistance to students and families. To find your local ISACorps member, visit studentportal.isac.org/isacorps.

 

Additionally, ISAC will be hosting and providing answers to college-going and financial aid questions during Facebook Live (@ILStudentAssistance) events every Wednesday from Sept. 11 - Oct. 9 and every Thursday from Oct. 3 - Nov. 21 from 7-7:30 pm CST. Personalized assistance is also available through ISAC College Q&A (isac.org/collegeqa), a free text messaging service where students can get answers to their college and financial aid questions sent directly to their phones. The award-winning ISAC Student Portal (isac.org/studentportal) offers free online tools and resources for students, as well as short videos about college and financial aid. ISAC also offers assistance through the agency’s call center, 1-800-899-4722 (ISAC), and its Online Chat service.

 

ISAC supports high schools and counselors who would like to participate in CCE fall activities with a downloadable toolkit, materials and event support. Find out more at collegechangeseverything.org/ccemonth.

 

About ISAC
The mission of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is to help make college accessible and affordable for students throughout Illinois. ISAC provides comprehensive, objective, and timely information on education and financial aid for students and their families—giving them access to the tools they need to make the educational choices that are right for them. Then, through the state scholarship and grant programs ISAC administers, ISAC can help students make those choices a reality. Find us at isac.org and follow us on Facebook @ILStudentAssistance, Twitter and on Instagram @ISACfinaid.

 

About College Changes Everything
College Changes Everything® (CCE) is a college access movement that recognizes that college can be a life changing experience not only for students, but also for families and communities. In Illinois and across the nation, those who obtain education beyond high school not only see a significant impact on their potential career prospects and future salary, but also change levels of poverty, life expectancy, crime and obesity rates in their communities. CCE is an essential part of helping Illinois reach its goal of increasing the proportion of adults in the state with high quality degrees or credentials to 60% by 2025.

IDVA and IDPH Report Negative Test Results for Legionella at the Illinois Veterans Home in Manteno

The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) today announced negative test results for Legionella bacteria at the Illinois Veterans Home at Manteno (IVHM), where it responded to a single case of Legionnaires’ disease on August 30.

At the time of diagnosis, IVHM confirmed that it was fully implementing its water management plan (WMP) and that the water quality for the facility was within expected parameters. In conjunction with its WMP, IVHM ordered additional water testing of the water service at locations throughout the buildings, and of the cooling tower. All tests taken that day were negative for legionella bacteria.  

“The Manteno Home staff responded swiftly when a single case of Legionnaires’ Disease was identified,” said Linda Chapa LaVia, Acting Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs. “These test results show that our water management plan continues to be effective in maintaining water quality throughout the home. We are happy to confirm that all water tests taken at the home came back negative for Legionella bacteria.”

Legionella bacteria occur naturally in the environment. In 2018, Illinois reported 512 cases of Legionnaires’ disease statewide with 285 confirmed to date in 2019. Legionnaires’ Disease is not spread from person to person, but by breathing in small droplets of water containing Legionella bacteria.

On August 30, IVHM notified all residents, family, and staff about the case of Legionnaires disease as soon as it was identified. IVHM implemented steps outlined in its WMP when a case of Legionnaires’ disease is identified at the home, including heat treating fixtures, flushing potable water lines and increasing sampling frequency of water systems.

IDPH assisted IVHM by providing guidance on clinical testing and infection prevention, along with conducting an onsite environmental health assessment to validate the steps implemented under the WMP. IDPH’s water samples were also negative for Legionella bacteria.

IDVA follows its water management plan and CDC recommendations to protect the health and safety of its residents.

All IDVA illness notifications may be found at www.veterans.illinois.gov. For more information on Legionnaires’ disease, please visit www.dph.illinois.gov.
