Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

(410 ILCS 212/) Illinois Family Case Management Act.

410 ILCS 212/1

    (410 ILCS 212/1)

410 ILCS 212/5

    (410 ILCS 212/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative findings and purpose. The General Assembly finds as follows:
        (1) The statewide rate of infant mortality continues
to remain at an unacceptable level in regard to the national average.
        (2) Within the State of Illinois, certain areas and
populations continue to experience rates of infant mortality far greater than either the statewide or national averages. Prevention activities need to be statewide for maximum benefit.
        (3) Family case management services are proven to be
effective in improving the health of women and infants and lowering the incidence of infant morbidity and mortality, particularly those individuals linked to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC).
        (4) Family case management improves the health and
development of children and families by providing the earliest identification of their needs and promoting linkages to address those needs.
        (5) Data demonstrates significantly lower Medicaid
expenditures for pregnant and postpartum women and children who have been enrolled in family case management and WIC services than for Medicaid-eligible persons not receiving case management services.
    Therefore, as a critical component in delivering comprehensive maternal and child health services in Illinois, it is the purpose of this Act to provide for the establishment and recognition of a program of family case management to ensure and provide statewide wrap-around services targeted toward reducing the incidence of infant mortality, very low birthweight infants, and low birthweight infants within the State.

    (410 ILCS 212/15)
    Sec. 15. Family Case Management Program. The Department shall establish and administer a family case management program. The purposes of the program shall be to reduce the incidence of infant mortality, very low birthweight infants, and low birthweight infants and to assist low-income families to obtain available health and human services needed for healthy growth and development, including but not limited to prenatal care, early periodic screening, diagnosis, and treatment (EPSDT) services, immunizations, lead screenings, nutritional support, and other specialized services for families with additional challenges and needs.
