Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Requires the Department of Human Services to provide child care services to all children who are eligible for assistance and are: (A) under age 13; or (B) under age 19 and (i) are under court supervision or (ii) have physical or mental incapacities as documented by a statement from a local health provider or other health professional. Effective July 1, 2017.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Human Services)
 HB 3540 (H-AM 1) requires the Department of Human Services to provide services to all children who are eligible for assistance and are under age 13, or under age 19 and are under court supervision or have physical or mental incapacities as documented by a statement from a health provider. This language is not needed as these populations are already eligible under administrative rule. The bill also removes language authorizing the Department to lower eligibility thresholds, create waitlists, raise copays and other actions to manage the program and control costs. Putting these eligibility requirements in statute and taking away the Department's management tools will limit the State's ability to manage and control costs of the program when the state lacks fiscal resources to support higher caseloads. Due to the removal of language authorizing the state to manage the costs of the Child Care Program the Department is unable to determine the fiscal impact of HB 3540 (H-AM 1).

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 HB 3540 does not have a fiscal impact to the Department of Human Services.
