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 5/5-5.12a

    (305 ILCS 5/5-5.12a)
    Sec. 5-5.12a. Title XIX waiver; pharmacy assistance program. The Illinois Department may seek a waiver of otherwise applicable requirements of Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act in order to claim federal financial participation for a pharmacy assistance program for persons aged 65 and over with income levels at or less than 250% of the federal poverty level. The Illinois Department may provide by rule for all other requirements of the program, including cost sharing, as permitted by an approved waiver and without regard to any provision of this Code to the contrary. The benefits may be no more restrictive than the Pharmacy Assistance Program in effect on May 31, 2001. Benefits provided under the waiver are subject to appropriation.
    The Illinois Department may not implement the waiver until cost neutrality is demonstrated for the State relative to the final Pharmacy Assistance Program appropriation for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2001. Implementation of the waiver shall terminate on June 30, 2007.
