Jun 28, 2013 — Early this morning, Illinois Medicaid declined to authorize coverage of Multi-Visceral Transplant procedures for adults at this time. According to them " There is no peer-reviewed and published literature that demonstrates the effectiveness and safety of this procedure and this, it is experimental in nature." PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROCEDURE IS COVERED FOR CHILDREN UNDER MEDICAID.

Experimental for adults but not for children? That doesn't make any sense.
