House Committee Amendment No. 1

55 ILCS 5/5-25002
Adds reference to:
305 ILCS 5/5-35 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that the Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall provide adolescents and young adults who are experiencing an initial episode of psychosis or pre-psychosis medical assistance coverage for the wrap-around service components of the bundled first episode psychosis treatment that are not covered by their primary health insurance plan. Provides that the purpose of this medical assistance coverage is to prevent disability and a permanent shift from private insurance coverage to medical assistance coverage for adolescents and young adults experiencing psychosis. Provides that eligibility requirements for adolescents and young adults with private insurance who apply for medical assistance coverage for the wrap-around service components of first episode psychosis treatment shall be the same as those requirements applicable to all other persons applying for medical assistance coverage. Requires the Department to maximize individual and family-cost sharing and any federal matching funds for coverage of the wrap-around service components of first episode psychosis treatment for adolescents and young adults with private insurance. Requires individuals and families with private insurance who are eligible for medical assistance coverage for the wrap-around service components of first episode psychosis treatment to contribute to the cost of the wrap-around services based on their income level and ability to pay. Requires the Division of Mental Health of the Department of Human Services, in cooperation with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, to establish, by rule, policies and procedures for cost-sharing within 6 months of receiving federal approval of the medical assistance coverage for wrap-around service components of first episode psychosis treatment as described in the new provisions. Requires the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to submit the necessary application to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for a waiver or State Plan amendment to implement such medical assistance coverage within 6 months of receiving federal approval. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Human Services)
 The State estimates that there would be 6,500 presentations of individuals with a diagnosis including psychosis annually and estimates the cost of services to be approximately $9,100 annually per individual resulting in approximately $59 million in additional expenditures. This would be 100% GRF.
