The Illinois Department of Human Services provides a Health Care Benefits Helpline to assist Medicaid recipients with finding Illinois doctors who accept the insurance, according to the department's website. ZocDoc also allows recipients to search for doctors who accept Illinois Medicaid, indicates the company website.
Not all doctors take new patients, so it's best to call their individual offices for current appointment and new patient information. The Health Care Benefits Helpline assists Medicaid recipients with other information, such as what services Medicaid covers, as well, explains the Illinois Department of Human Services. The Illinois Department of Human Services also provides a DentaQuest line for Medicaid patients to find dentists that work with the Medicaid program.
