On June 14, 2010, Health & Medicine Policy Research group (HMPRG) hosted a forum, “The State’s Fiscal Crisis: Changing Our Collective Response.” With over 70 attendees, the forum explored the impact of the State’s budget and recent cuts on health and human services in Illinois. Participants heard from panel speakers about how we might collectively respond to the crisis and ensure responsible and adequate funding for education, health, and human services in Illinois. Materials from the forum can be found on the HMPRG website (www.hmprg.org)

    • ALCOHOLISM AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE General Revenue Funds (Dollars in millions) FY08 Appropriation Request = $164.5M FY09 Appropriation Request = $109.5M FY10 Appropriation Request = $109.3M FY11 Appropriation Request = $140.3M
    • ALCOHOLISM AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE DASA: All funds SFY 2008 to SFY2010

    • New Age Services: OMT Clients funded/Year “budget relief” Actual: 3/09 Revised – retro to 7/1 l TBD na gi ri O
    • THE GREAT SILO EFFECT HEALTH HUMAN SERVICES OTHER SUPPORT SERVICES
    • STATUS: DHS/DASA FUNDING TO DATE Contracts: Decreasing – since SFY 2008 Payment: Time from Billing to Payment SLOW SLOW SLOW 3 months to 6 months and even 10/09 [IL Partners] FFS Rates: unchanged since SFY 2002 (3% COLA in SFY 2006) This amounts to a “cut” due to increased costs Consequences of untreated Substance use/abuse Clients/Patients admin detox Programs Close; Intake Doors Slam Shut Increased Waiting Lists Decrease Access to Many Services
    • Addiction Healthcare Cuts Yield Increased Costs: Additional Cuts in FY 11 to Addiction Prevention and Treatment Services Result in $280 million in Related Costs Failure by the State to adequately fund alcohol and drug prevention, treatment and recovery services results in the State paying out billions in costs associated with untreated addiction. Annually, the State of Illinois spends only $1 on addiction healthcare services for every $33 that is allocated to pay for the consequences of substance use disorders and addiction. Of the estimated $4.85 billion spent annually in Illinois on issues related to substance use and addiction, only $147 million is actually spent on the prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug use and addiction. By cutting Addiction Prevention and Treatment state funding by 8% in FY11, on top of cuts already imposed in FY10, the State will need to add an additional $280 million to cover the expenses that will be incurred in Criminal Justice, Education, Healthcare, Child Welfare, and Public Safety as a result of untreated addictions.

    • WHAT’S NEXT??? Reality at the agency level: Inability for Board to pass FY 2011 Budget (varies based on %age of State Dollars that comprise the agency’s budget) Given the “state of the state” – prepare staff and clients/patients for layoffs and admin detox Look for additional places to cut expenses – not likely since that has been ongoing since FY 2009 Verify Line of Credit still available [NOTE: may be harder this year w/ the State as the source of the Account Receivable balance] Finding the best way to have a voice for our needs
