(210 ILCS 45/3-103)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-103)
The procedure for obtaining a valid license shall be as follows:
(1) Application to operate a facility shall be made
to the Department on forms furnished by the Department.
(2) All license applications shall be accompanied
with an application fee. The fee for an annual license shall be $1,990. Facilities that pay a fee or assessment pursuant to Article V-C of the Illinois Public Aid Code shall be exempt from the license fee imposed under this item (2). The fee for a 2-year license shall be double the fee for the annual license. The fees collected shall be deposited with the State Treasurer into the Long Term Care Monitor/Receiver Fund, which has been created as a special fund in the State treasury. This special fund is to be used by the Department for expenses related to the appointment of monitors and receivers as contained in Sections 3-501 through 3-517 of this Act, for the enforcement of this Act, for expenses related to surveyor development, and for implementation of the Abuse Prevention Review Team Act. All federal moneys received as a result of expenditures from the Fund shall be deposited into the Fund. The Department may reduce or waive a penalty pursuant to Section 3-308 only if that action will not threaten the ability of the Department to meet the expenses required to be met by the Long Term Care Monitor/Receiver Fund. The application shall be under oath and the submission of false or misleading information shall be a Class A misdemeanor. The application shall contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of the applicant if an
individual, and if a firm, partnership, or association, of every member thereof, and in the case of a corporation, the name and address thereof and of its officers and its registered agent, and in the case of a unit of local government, the name and address of its chief executive officer;
(b) The name and location of the facility for
which a license is sought;
(c) The name of the person or persons under whose
management or supervision the facility will be conducted;
(d) The number and type of residents for which
maintenance, personal care, or nursing is to be provided; and
(e) Such information relating to the number,
experience, and training of the employees of the facility, any management agreements for the operation of the facility, and of the moral character of the applicant and employees as the Department may deem necessary.
(3) Each initial application shall be accompanied by
a financial statement setting forth the financial condition of the applicant and by a statement from the unit of local government having zoning jurisdiction over the facility's location stating that the location of the facility is not in violation of a zoning ordinance. An initial application for a new facility shall be accompanied by a permit as required by the "Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act". After the application is approved, the applicant shall advise the Department every 6 months of any changes in the information originally provided in the application.
(4) Other information necessary to determine the
identity and qualifications of an applicant to operate a facility in accordance with this Act shall be included in the application as required by the Department in regulations.
