Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

5 ILCS 375/6.1

    (5 ILCS 375/6.1) (from Ch. 127, par. 526.1)
    Sec. 6.1. The program of health benefits may offer as an alternative, available on an optional basis, coverage through health maintenance organizations. That part of the premium for such coverage which is in excess of the amount which would otherwise be paid by the State for the program of health benefits shall be paid by the member who elects such alternative coverage and shall be collected as provided for premiums for other optional coverages.
    However, nothing in this Act shall be construed to permit, after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1983, the noncontributory portion of any such program to include the expenses of obtaining an abortion, induced miscarriage or induced premature birth unless, in the opinion of a physician, such procedures are necessary for the preservation of the life of the woman seeking such treatment, or except an induced premature birth intended to produce a live viable child and such procedure is necessary for the health of the mother or her unborn child.
