(65 ILCS 5/10-4-2.3)
Required health benefits.
If a municipality, including a
home rule municipality, is a self-insurer for purposes of providing health
insurance coverage for its employees, the coverage shall include coverage for
the post-mastectomy care benefits required to be covered by a policy of
accident and health insurance under Section 356t and the coverage required
under Sections 356g, 356g.5, 356g.5-1, 356u, 356w, 356x, 356z.6, 356z.8, 356z.9, 356z.10, 356z.11, 356z.12, 356z.13, 356z.14, and 356z.15 of the Illinois
Code. The coverage shall comply with Sections 155.22a and 356z.19 of
the Illinois Insurance Code. The requirement that health
benefits be covered as provided in this is an exclusive power and function of
the State and is a denial and limitation under Article VII, Section 6,
subsection (h) of the Illinois Constitution. A home rule municipality to which
this Section applies must comply with every provision of this Section.
Rulemaking authority to implement Public Act 95-1045, if any, is conditioned on the rules being adopted in accordance with all provisions of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act and all rules and procedures of the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules; any purported rule not so adopted, for whatever reason, is unauthorized.
