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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

The powers and duties of the Department shall include the following:
(1) Develop standards for determining eligibility for
care and treatment under this program. Among other standards developed under this Section, persons suffering from hemophilia must be evaluated in a center properly staffed and equipped for such evaluation, but not operated by the Department.
(3) Extend financial assistance to eligible persons
in order that they may obtain blood and blood derivatives for use in hospitals, in medical and dental facilities, or at home. The Department shall extend financial assistance in each fiscal year to each family containing one or more eligible persons in the amount of (a) the family's eligible cost of hemophilia services for that fiscal year, minus (b) one fifth of its available family income for its next preceding taxable year. The Director may extend financial assistance in the case of unusual hardships, according to specific procedures and conditions adopted for this purpose in the rules and regulations promulgated by the Department to implement and administer this Act.
(5) Promulgate rules and regulations for the
implementation and administration of this Act.
Effective January 1, 2014, coverage under this Act shall be coordinated with the requirements of the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act and eligibility under this Act shall be available only to individuals who have met their obligations under the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act to obtain health insurance. For purposes of this Act, payment of a tax penalty for failing to obtain insurance is not considered fulfilling the obligation to obtain health insurance under the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act. Coverage of blood and blood derivatives for use in hospitals, in medical and dental facilities, or at home shall be coordinated with the individual's health insurance plan.
The Department of Healthcare and Family Services, the Department of Human Services, and the Illinois health insurance marketplace shall work cooperatively to assist persons enrolled for services under this Act to obtain health insurance coverage prior to January 1, 2014.
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 Act or the Illinois Public Aid Code to reduce any rate of reimbursement for services or other payments in accordance with Section 5-5e of the Illinois Public Aid Code.
