    AN ACT concerning health.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Consent by Minors to Health Care Services
Act is amended by changing Section 4 as follows:
 
    (410 ILCS 210/4)  (from Ch. 111, par. 4504)
    Sec. 4. Sexually transmitted disease; drug or alcohol
abuse. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a minor 12
years of age or older who may have come into contact with any
sexually transmitted disease, or may be determined to be an
intoxicated person or a person with a substance use disorder,
as defined in the Substance Use Disorder Act, or who may have a
family member who abuses drugs or alcohol, may give consent to
the furnishing of health care services or counseling related to
the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of the disease. Each
incident of sexually transmitted disease shall be reported to
the State Department of Public Health or the local board of
health in accordance with regulations adopted under statute or
ordinance. The consent of the parent, parents, or legal
guardian of a minor shall not be necessary to authorize health
care services or counseling related to the prevention,
diagnosis, or treatment of sexually transmitted disease or drug
use or alcohol consumption by the minor or the effects on the
minor of drug or alcohol abuse by a member of the minor's
family. The consent of the minor shall be valid and binding as
if the minor had achieved his or her majority. The consent
shall not be voidable nor subject to later disaffirmance
because of minority.
    Anyone involved in the furnishing of health services care
to the minor or counseling related to the prevention,
diagnosis, or treatment of the minor's disease or drug or
alcohol use by the minor or a member of the minor's family
shall, upon the minor's consent, make reasonable efforts, to
involve the family of the minor in his or her treatment, if the
person furnishing treatment believes that the involvement of
the family will not be detrimental to the progress and care of
the minor. Reasonable effort shall be extended to assist the
minor in accepting the involvement of his or her family in the
care and treatment being given.
