Parolees in Illinois eligible for Medicaid


Springfield - Nearly 30,000 Illinois parolees may soon qualify for Medicaid coverage in 2014 under President Barack Obama's health care law.  


Illinois is among 26-states planning to expand the benefits. Last year's Supreme Court decision upheld the law, but made Medicaid expansion optional for states.


Many parolees in the past didn't qualify for Medicaid benefits.
