Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

20 ILCS 2105/2105-170

    (20 ILCS 2105/2105-170)
    Sec. 2105-170. Health care workers; automatic suspension of license. A health care worker, as defined by the Health Care Worker Self-Referral Act, licensed by the Department shall be automatically and indefinitely suspended if the licensee has either been convicted of or has entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere in a criminal prosecution to a criminal health care or criminal insurance fraud offense requiring intent under the laws of the State, the laws of any other state, or the laws of the United States of America, including, but not limited to, criminal Medicare or Medicaid fraud. A certified copy of the conviction or judgment shall be the basis for the suspension. If a licensee requests a hearing, then the sole purpose of the hearing shall be limited to the length of the suspension of the licensee's license, as the conviction or judgment is a matter of record and may not be challenged.
