LCU wins funds to cover under/un-insured outpatient & wrap around services

Lake County United organized a meeting with Lake County Chairwoman, Health Department Executive Director, President Chiefs of Police Association and Waukegan Police Chief to seek a commitment from U.S. Healthvest / Lake Behavioral Hospital to provide space, staff, medical clearance, detoxification and police drop off, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay with state approved Medicaid funding for these services. A commitment verbally and in writing was made by U.S.Healthvest, which will allow the county to redirect funds from building and running a CSU to put toward outpatient and wrap around services.
