Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act and the Radiation Protection Act of 1990. Provides that on and after the effective date of the amendatory Act, no license shall be granted or renewed under the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act unless the applicant: (i) submits, and the Department of Public Health (IDPH) approves, a plan for providing service to Medicaid recipients and medically underserved populations in its service area; or (ii) submits a plan for charity care that has been approved by the Illinois Attorney General; or (iii) submits a notarized statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the organization certifying that the applicant will not refuse service to any patient because the services the patient seeks may be reimbursed under Medicaid. Provides that no person may administer radiation to a human being in a Class C or D radiation installation, other than a hospital, unless the radiation installation submits similar items to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA). Provides that in addition, no ambulatory surgical treatment center license shall be granted or renewed, and radiation may not be administered in a Class C or D installation other than a hospital, if IDPH or IEMA, respectively, determines that the license applicant or radiation installation has not complied with a prior plan or notarized statement submitted pursuant to these provisions. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Makes the bill's amendatory changes to the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act and the Radiation Protection Act of 1990 applicable only to license applicants whose facilities are located in Cook County. Deletes a requirement that an applicant submit a plan for charity care that has been approved by the Illinois Attorney General. Provides that an applicant must submit a plan for providing service to Medicaid recipients and medically underserved populations and (instead of or) submit a notarized statement that the applicant will not refuse service to any patient because the services the patient seeks may be reimbursed under the medical assistance program.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
In the provisions amending the Radiation Protection Act of 1990, provides that the amendatory changes concerning radiation administered in a Class C or Class D radiation installation do not apply to a dental office (in addition to not applying to a hospital).
