(705 ILCS 405/5-515)
Medical and dental treatment and care.
At all times during temporary custody, detention or shelter care, the court may
authorize a physician, a hospital or any other appropriate health care provider
to provide medical, dental or surgical procedures if those procedures are
necessary to safeguard the minor's life or health.
If the minor is covered under an existing medical or dental plan, the county
shall be reimbursed for the expenses incurred for such services as if the minor
were not held in temporary custody, detention, or shelter care.
