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.

Other terms shall be defined by the Illinois Department by rule.
    As used in this Section, unless the context requires otherwise:
    "Base inpatient payments" means, for a given hospital, the sum of base payments for inpatient services made on a per diem or per admission (DRG) basis, excluding those portions of per admission payments that are classified as capital payments.

    "Capital costs" means, for a given hospital, the total capital costs determined using the most recent 2005 Medicare cost report as contained in the Healthcare Cost Report Information System file, for the quarter ending on December 31, 2006, divided by the total inpatient days from the same cost report to calculate a capital cost per day. The resulting capital cost per day is inflated to the midpoint of State fiscal year 2009 utilizing the national hospital market price proxies (DRI) hospital cost index. If a hospital's 2005 Medicare cost report is not contained in the Healthcare Cost Report Information System, the Department may obtain the data necessary to compute the hospital's capital costs from any source available, including, but not limited to, records maintained by the hospital provider, which may be inspected at all times during business hours of the day by the Illinois Department or its duly authorized agents and employees.
    "Case mix index" means, for a given hospital, the sum of the DRG relative weighting factors in effect on January 1, 2005, for all general acute care admissions for State fiscal year 2005, excluding Medicare crossover admissions and transplant admissions reimbursed under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.82, divided by the total number of general acute care admissions for State fiscal year 2005, excluding Medicare crossover admissions and transplant admissions reimbursed under 89 Ill. Adm. Code 148.82.
    "Medicaid inpatient day" means, for a given hospital, the sum of days of inpatient hospital days provided to recipients of medical assistance under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act, excluding days for individuals eligible for Medicare under Title XVIII of that Act (Medicaid/Medicare crossover days), as tabulated from the Department's paid claims data for admissions occurring during State fiscal year 2005 that was adjudicated by the Department through March 23, 2007.
    "Medicaid obstetrical day" means, for a given hospital, the sum of days of inpatient hospital days grouped by the Department to DRGs of 370 through 375 provided to recipients of medical assistance under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act, excluding days for individuals eligible for Medicare under Title XVIII of that Act (Medicaid/Medicare crossover days), as tabulated from the Department's paid claims data for admissions occurring during State fiscal year 2005 that was adjudicated by the Department through March 23, 2007.

Code 148.140(b), provided to recipients of medical assistance under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act, excluding payments for individuals eligible for Medicare under Title XVIII of the Act (Medicaid/Medicare crossover days), as tabulated from the Department's paid claims data for services occurring in State fiscal year 2005 that were adjudicated by the Department through March 23, 2007.
    (o) The Department may adjust payments made under this Section 5A-12.2 to comply with federal law or regulations regarding hospital-specific payment limitations on government-owned or government-operated hospitals.
    (p) Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Section, the Department is authorized to adopt rules that change the hospital access improvement payments specified in this Section, but only to the extent necessary to conform to any federally approved amendment to the Title XIX State plan. Any such rules shall be adopted by the Department as authorized by Section 5-50 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any changes implemented as a result of this subsection (p) shall be given retroactive effect so that they shall be deemed to have taken effect as of the effective date of this Section.
    (q) (Blank).
    (r) On and after July 1, 2012, the Department shall reduce any rate of reimbursement for services or other payments or alter any methodologies authorized by this Code to reduce any rate of reimbursement for services or other payments in accordance with Section 5-5e.
    (s) On or after January 1, 2016, and no less than annually thereafter, the Department shall increase capitation payments to capitated managed care organizations (MCOs) to equal the aggregate reduction of payments made in this Section and in Section 5A-12.4 by a uniform percentage on a regional basis to preserve access to hospital services for recipients under the Illinois Medical Assistance Program. The aggregate amount of all increased capitation payments to all MCOs for a fiscal year shall be the amount needed to avoid reduction in payments authorized under Section 5A-15. Payments to MCOs under this Section shall be consistent with actuarial certification and shall be published by the Department each year. Each MCO shall only expend the increased capitation payments it receives under this Section to support the availability of hospital services and to ensure access to hospital services, with such expenditures being made within 15 calendar days from when the MCO receives the increased capitation payment. The Department shall make available, on a monthly basis, a report of the capitation payments that are made to each MCO pursuant to this subsection, including the number of enrollees for which such payment is made, the per enrollee amount of the payment, and any adjustments that have been made. Payments made under this subsection shall be guaranteed by a surety bond obtained by the MCO in an amount established by the Department to approximate one month's liability of payments authorized under this subsection. The Department may advance the payments guaranteed by the surety bond. Payments to MCOs that would be paid consistent with actuarial certification and enrollment in the absence of the increased capitation payments under this Section shall not be reduced as a consequence of payments made under this subsection.
    As used in this subsection, "MCO" means an entity which contracts with the Department to provide services where payment for medical services is made on a capitated basis.
    (t) On or after July 1, 2014, the Department may increase capitation payments to capitated managed care organizations (MCOs) to equal the aggregate reduction of payments made in Section 5A-12.5 to preserve access to hospital services for recipients under the Illinois Medical Assistance Program. Effective January 1, 2016, the Department shall increase capitation payments to MCOs to include the payments authorized under Section 5A-12.5 to preserve access to hospital services for recipients under the Illinois Medical Assistance Program by ensuring that the reimbursement provided for Affordable Care Act adults enrolled in a MCO is equivalent to the reimbursement provided for Affordable Care Act adults enrolled in a fee-for-service program. Payments to MCOs under this Section shall be consistent with actuarial certification and federal approval (which may be retrospectively determined) and shall be published by the Department each year. Each MCO shall only expend the increased capitation payments it receives under this Section to support the availability of hospital services and to ensure access to hospital services, with such expenditures being made within 15 calendar days from when the MCO receives the increased capitation payment. Payments made under this subsection may be guaranteed by a surety bond obtained by the MCO in an amount established by the Department to approximate one month's liability of payments authorized under this subsection. The Department may advance the payments to hospitals under this subsection, in the event the MCO fails to make such payments. The Department shall make available, on a monthly basis, a report of the capitation payments that are made to each MCO pursuant to this subsection, including the number of enrollees for which such payment is made, the per enrollee amount of the payment, and any adjustments that have been made. Payments to MCOs that would be paid consistent with actuarial certification and enrollment in the absence of the increased capitation payments under this subsection shall not be reduced as a consequence of payments made under this subsection.
    As used in this subsection, "MCO" means an entity which contracts with the Department to provide services where payment for medical services is made on a capitated basis.
