Amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code.

Provides that the waiver application shall propose to align the number of required community engagement and work hours to the work requirements under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by requiring all non-exempt individuals to complete 20 hours per week (80 hours per month) of qualifying activities to remain eligible for medical assistance benefits. Provides that under the waiver, certain persons shall be exempt from the community engagement and work requirements, including children under the age of 19, pregnant women, and full-time students. Provides that implementation of the community engagement and work requirements shall be contingent on the receipt of all necessary federal waivers or approvals.
