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.

It shall be the duty of the presiding officer of the county board of each county, with the advice and consent of that county board, to appoint a duly licensed physician, hereinafter called the examiner, who is familiar with cancer and tumor cases, who shall maintain an office in some convenient place during the entire year for the purpose of examining applicants for the benefits of the provisions of this Division.
    Such examiner shall examine all applicants desiring to receive the benefits of the provisions of this Division, referred to him by the county board and shall endorse on each such application a certificate to each such applicant, stating whether or not in his opinion such applicant is entitled to receive the benefits of the provisions of this Division.
    Such application may be filed with the county board by the person afflicted with cancer or tumor, and whenever it shall come to the notice of any public health nurse, any public health officer, or any physician of such county, that any person entitled to the benefits of this Division has not applied therefor, it shall be the duty of such nurse, health officer or physician to file such an application with such board on behalf of such afflicted person.
