"The rates that the state provides for us do not cover the actual cost of treatment for indigents," said Steve Knox, CEO of Triangle Center, a Springfield-based treatment facility.
Knox said his facility is underwriting the cost above what the state is paying — a practice that can't continue indefinitely. "Yes, we have a waiting list. It's about two months long, and it's very hard to get people in," said Knox, adding the wait has, at times, been as long as three months. "When people summon the courage to come and help themselves, that courage can go away very quickly," Knox said. Knox said costs not covered by the state are paid by people who have private insurance, people who can pay for their own treatment and the facility's contracts with the federal government for programs such as post-incarceration care. There could still be a wait list even if the state covered the actual cost of treatment, Knox said, but the facility also could treat more people. Even more may be waiting Moscato Howe noted the study commissioned by her organization doesn't count everyone who wants help — only those who didn't hang up the phone when told they would have to wait.

That situation frustrates Stephen Knox, chief executive of Springfield's not-for-profit Triangle Center, which hasn't received a substantial payment from the state since mid-August. "The governor is on the road, trying to expand health-care programs in Illinois," Knox said Thursday.Triangle is owed almost $700,000 in state funding, or 22 percent of its $3.2 million annual budget, Knox said. The backlog is the worst Knox has seen in his 20 years at Triangle, which has obtained a line of credit from a bank to survive the shortfall and now must ask for that line to be extended. "In effect, we're subsidizing the state's activities," he said, adding that the backlog and lack of a cost-of-living rate increase have contributed to a growing waiting list for Triangle's services. "I haven't thought of expansion for three or four years because it's just impossible," Knox said. The average wait at Triangle is 60 days.When people with drug and alcohol addictions want treatment but must wait, they are at high risk from medical problems, drunken driving, domestic abuse and suicide, Knox said. Rikeesha Cannon, spokeswoman for the Department of Human Services, declined to comment on the statements by Knox and Powers about Illinois Covered's funding.
