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.

215 ILCS 5/356z.23

    (215 ILCS 5/356z.23)
    Sec. 356z.23. Coverage for opioid antagonists.
    (a) An individual or group policy of accident and health insurance amended, delivered, issued, or renewed in this State after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 99th General Assembly that provides coverage for prescription drugs must provide coverage for at least one opioid antagonist, including the medication product, administration devices, and any pharmacy administration fees related to the dispensing of the opioid antagonist. This coverage must include refills for expired or utilized opioid antagonists.
    (a-5) Notwithstanding subsection (a), no individual or group policy of accident and health insurance amended, delivered, issued, or renewed after January 1, 2024 that provides coverage for naloxone hydrochloride shall impose a copayment on the coverage provided, except that this subsection does not apply to coverage of naloxone hydrochloride to the extent such coverage would disqualify a high-deductible health plan from eligibility for a health savings account under Section 223 of the Internal Revenue Code.
    (b) As used in this Section, "opioid antagonist" means a drug that binds to opioid receptors and blocks or inhibits the effect of opioids acting on those receptors, including, but not limited to, naloxone hydrochloride or any other similarly acting drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
