(305 ILCS 5/5-2.03)
Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly and except where federal law requires presumptive eligibility, no adult may be presumed eligible for medical assistance under this Code and the Department may not cover any service rendered to an adult unless the adult has completed an application for benefits, all required verifications have been received, and the Department or its designee has found the adult eligible for the date on which that service was provided. Nothing in this Section shall apply to pregnant women or to persons enrolled under the medical assistance program due to expansions approved by the federal government that are financed entirely by units of local government and federal matching funds.
