Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Health Care Justice Act. Provides that the State of Illinois shall implement a health care plan that provides access to a full range of preventive, acute, and long-term health care services. Establishes the Bipartisan Health Care Reform Commission with members appointed by the Governor and legislative leaders. Provides for public hearings and a report by the Commission. Requires a preliminary report by February 1, 2005 and a final report by February 1, 2006. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Public Health)
 It is difficult to estimate the cost of such a contract but it could very easily equal or exceed the $500,000 cost of the research and reporting work performed in conjunction with a study of Illinois uninsured performed for the Illinois Assembly on the Uninsured.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the Secretary of Human Services or his designee shall serve on the Health Care Reform Commission. Provides for the legislative leaders to each appoint one member, rather than 2, to the Commission. Provides for the Governor to appoint 21, rather than 15, members of the Commission. Provides that funding for a study by an independent research entity shall be subject to appropriation or availability of other funds. Provides that the Commission's recommendations shall be considered by the General Assembly as the basis for a health care access plan, rather than the recommendations forming the basis for a health care access plan.
