(305 ILCS 5/5H-8)
Duties of the Department.
(a) The Department shall ensure that rates to Medicaid managed care organizations are actuarially sound including appropriate incorporation of assessments under this Article, other taxes and administrative expenses, including standardization of processes, and cost of medical care.
(b) The Department shall pay to each Medicaid managed care organization the amount required to be included in its rates due to the assessment under this Article in order to ensure actuarial soundness within 10 business days of receipt of each assessment payment from the Medicaid managed care organization. The Department shall extend the deadline for any assessment payment due after the initial assessment payment if the payment to the managed care organizations under this subsection for the previous assessment payment has not been paid. Such extension shall extend until 7 business days after receipt by the managed care organization of the late payment under this subsection.
(c) Reimbursement of assessments paid under this Article shall not be required to count as revenue towards any calculation of the managed care organization's medical loss ratio, net worth, risk based capital or other deposit requirements as may otherwise be required under the Insurance Code. Such reimbursements will be considered revenue in calculating the 6% limit under 42 U.S.C. 433.68(f)(3).
(d) The Department shall include in its annual report, beginning with its fiscal year 2020 report, and every year thereafter, information on the revenues collected from this assessment, the federal funds drawn based on those revenues, the rates set in Section 5H-3 or any alterations thereof by administrative rule, and other impacts this gross revenue has had on the Medicaid program.
