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.

    (305 ILCS 5/11-4.1)
    Sec. 11-4.1. Medical providers assisting with applications for medical assistance. A provider enrolled to provide medical assistance services may, upon the request of an individual, accompany, represent, and assist the individual in applying for medical assistance under Article V of this Code. If an individual is unable to request such assistance due to incapacity or mental incompetence and has no other representative willing or able to assist in the application process, a facility licensed under the Nursing Home Care Act, the ID/DD Community Care Act, or the MC/DD Act or certified under this Code is authorized to assist the individual in applying for long-term care services. Subject to the provisions of the Free Healthcare Benefits Application Assistance Act, nothing in this Section shall be construed as prohibiting any individual or entity from assisting another individual in applying for medical assistance under Article V of this Code.
