Senator Bill Brady is calling for an immediate suspension of the process of selecting vendors for state-administered supplemental HMO insurance coverage, based on a March 8 report detailing a state audit of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (DHFS).

Senator Brady sent a letter to Governor Pat Quinn on March 8.

He also sent a letter to Illinois Legislative Audit Commission Executive Director Jane Stricklin asking for an expedited hearing.

State Auditor General Bill Holland blasted DHFS for its handling of a five-year, $6.6 billion contract to the state’s largest insurer to administer HMO plans for state employees.
