  • Hundreds of thousands of Illinois residents who have purchased health insurance plans on the individual market, or enrolled in network plans by other means, are now facing "narrow" or "tiered" networks. These networks only include a limited number of health care professionals and facilities. The Illinois State Medical Society is working in to enact consumer protections in Illinois with the Network Adequacy and Transparency Act (House Bill 311 and Senate Bill 70). The legislation would require health insurers to develop networks that meet the needs of patients for plans sold in Illinois and maintain up-to-date directories of 'in-network" health professionals and facilities.

  • As a family physician, Dr. Hanak has a lot of reminders built into his workflow. His EMR system prompts him to perform all kinds of screenings on patients – breast cancer, colon cancer and hypertension, to name a few – but nowhere is he prompted to screen his patients for Hepatitis C.

    "Hepatitis C screening isn't on the radar yet for quality reporting programs, but it is the right thing to do, so I make sure that I screen my patients consistent with the practice guidelines. The truth is, we will be saving patients from suffering while saving our health system money in the long run by avoiding more costly treatments associated with full-blown liver disease," says Dr. Hanak.

The DuPage County Medical Society, established in 1918, is the professional organization for physicians in our community. Members are local physicians, medical students and residents dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of DuPage County patients. Members are also part of the Illinois State Medical Society, the leading advocate for physicians and patients across Illinois.


  • “I joined to better understand the commonality among physicians and to better focus my and others’ resources on what we all share as physicians practicing in Illinois. I have learned so much from everyone and have hopefully helped others understand the challenges of my specialty, but most importantly made new friends. And together, we are trying to make everyone’s professional life more fulfilling. Who would not want to be a part of that?”

    Our Foundation

    Providing Student Scholarships

    Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.
