Illinois not complying with orders to fund Medicaid -U.S. judge

CHICAGO, June 7 (Reuters) - A U.S. District Court judge on Wednesday said Illinois has failed to comply with federal consent decrees by minimally funding Medicaid during the state’s budget impasse.

Judge Joan Lefkow ordered renewed negotiations between Illinois and health care advocates for the poor to reach a goal of “substantial compliance” with the decrees.
