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.

Long-term care services and supports comprehensive study and actuarial modeling.
(a) The Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall commission a comprehensive study of long-term care trends, future projections, and actuarial analysis of a new long-term services and supports benefit. Upon completion of the study, the Department shall prepare a report on the study that includes the following:
(1) an extensive analysis of long-term care trends in
Illinois, including the number of Illinoisans needing long-term care, the number of paid and unpaid caregivers, the existing long-term care programs' utilization and impact on the State budget; out-of-pocket spending and spend-down to qualify for medical assistance coverage, the financial and health impacts of caregiving on the family, wages of paid caregivers and the effects of compensation on the availability of this workforce, the current market for private long-term care insurance, and a brief assessment of the existing system of long-term services and supports in terms of health, well-being, and the ability of participants to continue living in their communities;
(2) an analysis of long-term care costs and
utilization projections through at least 2050 and the estimated impact of such costs and utilization projections on the State budget, increases in the senior population; projections of the number of paid and unpaid caregivers in relation to demand for services, and projections of the impact of housing cost burdens and a lack of affordable housing on seniors and people with disabilities;
(3) an actuarial analysis of options for a new
long-term services and supports benefit program, including an analysis of potential tax sources and necessary levels, a vesting period, the maximum daily benefit dollar amount, the total maximum dollar amount of the benefit, and the duration of the benefit; and
(4) a qualitative analysis of a new benefit's impact
on seniors and people with disabilities, including their families and caregivers, public and private long-term care services, and the State budget.
The report must project under multiple possible configurations the numbers of persons covered year over year, utilization rates, total spending, and the benefit fund's ratio balance and solvency. The benefit fund must initially be structured to be solvent for 75 years. The report must detail the sensitivity of these projections to the level of care criteria that define long-term care need and examine the feasibility of setting a lower threshold, based on a lower need for ongoing assistance in routine life activities.
The report must also detail the amount of out-of-pocket costs avoided, the number of persons who delayed or avoided utilization of medical assistance benefits, an analysis on the projected increased utilization of home-based and community-based services over skilled nursing facilities and savings therewith, and savings to the State's existing long-term care programs due to the new long-term services and supports benefit.
(b) The entity chosen to conduct the actuarial analysis shall be a nationally-recognized organization with experience modeling public and private long-term care financing programs.
(c) The study shall begin after January 1, 2019, and be completed before December 1, 2019. Upon completion, the report on the study shall be filed with the Clerk of the House of Representatives and the Secretary of the Senate in electronic form only, in the manner that the Clerk and the Secretary shall direct.
(d) This Section is repealed December 1, 2020.
