Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971. Removes a provision prohibiting the non-contributory portion of a program of health-benefits from including the expenses of obtaining an abortion. Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Removes a provision excluding abortions or induced miscarriages or premature births from the list of services provided under the State's medical assistance program. Removes language providing for the adoption of rules to prohibit a physician from providing medical assistance to anyone eligible for medical assistance benefits if the physician has been found guilty of willfully and wantonly performing an abortion procedure upon a woman who was not pregnant at the time of the procedure. Removes other provisions concerning abortion restrictions. Amends the Problem Pregnancy Health Services and Care Act. Removes language prohibiting the Department of Human Services from making grants to nonprofit agencies and organizations that use such grants to refer or counsel for, or perform, abortions. Amends the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975. Provides that it is the intention of the General Assembly to reasonably regulate abortion in conformance with the legal standards set forth in the decisions of the United States Supreme Court of January 22, 1973. Removes language concerning the General Assembly's declaration that the unborn child is a human being from the time of conception and is, therefore, a legal person for purposes of the unborn child's right to life. Makes other changes.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This legislation would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 40 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 HB 40 has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation has determined that no land conveyance is necessary for this bill.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 HB 40 does not create a State mandate.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling, a single-family residence.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 HB 40 does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 An accurate cost assessment for this bill cannot be completed at this time because it does not mandate the State to fund these services. However, by removing these prohibitions it opens the State up for significant cost liabilities to incur. It is unknown how often these services would be utilized by Medicaid enrollees or State employees, the exact cost to health insurance plans, or how many new grant requests the Department of Human Services would receive as a response to this, and future related legislation.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Healthcare & Family Services)
 The estimated annual cost for abortion services resulting from House Bill 40 is approximately $1.8 million, which would be 100% GRF funded. There may be other budgetary impacts that are not quantifiable.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling, a single-family residence.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Further amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that notwithstanding any other provision of the Code, reproductive health care that is otherwise legal in Illinois shall be covered under the medical assistance program for persons who are otherwise eligible for medical assistance.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to House Bill 40 (H-AM 1) as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.
