Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Regional Integrated Behavioral Health Networks Act. Provides that the Department of Human Services shall establish Regional Integrated Behavioral Health Networks for the purpose of ensuring and improving access to appropriate mental health and substance abuse services throughout Illinois by providing a platform for the organization of all relevant health, mental health, substance abuse, and other community entities and a mechanism to use and channel financial and other resources efficiently and effectively. Provides that the goals of the Networks shall include, but not be limited to, enabling persons with mental and substance use illnesses to access clinically appropriate, evidence-based services, regardless of where they reside in the State and particularly in rural areas; and improving access to mental health and substance abuse services throughout Illinois, but especially in rural Illinois communities. Contains provisions concerning the establishment of a Steering Committee and Network Councils; the development of Regional Integrated Behavioral Health Network Plans, and the timeline for such plans; and required reports. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts similar provisions, but with the following changes: Removes from the Network's list of goals the goal of defining the respective roles and relationships between public and private providers, preserving continued access to State-operated hospitals while enhancing acute care alternatives in private hospitals and community providers. Removes language providing that the agencies of the Steering Committee are directed to work collaboratively to provide consultation, advise, and leadership to the Networks in the development of a comprehensive, regional plan and in identifying sources of securing funding for the Networks. Removes language listing specific trade and professional associations, hospitals, and community providers that shall be represented on the Regional Network Advisory Council and instead provides that the Council shall be comprised of representatives of community stakeholders represented in the Network, including when available, but not limited to, relevant trade and professional associations representing hospitals, community providers, public health care, hospice care, long term care, law enforcement, emergency medical service, physicians trained in psychiatry; an organization that advocates on behalf of federally qualified health centers, an organization that advocates on behalf of persons suffering with mental illness and substance abuse disorders, an organization that advocates on behalf of persons with disabilities, an organization that advocates on behalf of persons who live in rural areas, an organization that advocates on behalf of persons who live in medically underserved areas; and others designated by the Steering Committee or Networks. Makes other changes. Effective January 1, 2012.
