Amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that, subject to federal approval, the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, in cooperation with the Department of Human Services' Division of Developmental Disabilities, shall establish a Bridge to Community Supports for Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities Waiver Program (waiver program). Provides that the waiver program shall serve young adults with developmental disabilities who are at least 18 years of age but under 27 years of age from the time they graduate from high school or are no longer eligible for special education services until they are removed from the Prioritization for Urgency of Need for Services database or until the day before their 27th birthday, whichever occurs first. Provides that the waiver program shall provide an array of self-directed service choices, based on a person-centered plan developed with the eligible young adult, at a maximum of $15,000 per individual per year. Requires the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to apply to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for a research and demonstration waiver under the Social Security Act to establish the waiver program.
