(2), a law enforcement, correctional or correctional probation officer, or other beneficiary who receives or seeks to receive health insurance benefits under this Section shall forfeit the right to receive health insurance benefits and shall reimburse the employer for all benefits paid due to the fraud or other prohibited activity. For purposes of this item, "conviction" means a determination of guilt that is the result of a plea or trial, regardless of whether adjudication is withheld.
(b) In order for the law enforcement, correctional or correctional probation
officer, firefighter, spouse, or dependent children to be eligible for

the result of the officer's response to fresh pursuit, the officer or
firefighter's response to what is reasonably believed to be an emergency, an
unlawful act perpetrated by another, or during the investigation of a criminal
act. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to limit health insurance
coverage or pension benefits for which the officer, firefighter, spouse, or
dependent children may otherwise be eligible.
