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.

        (1) the card or other purchasing mechanism or device
does not expressly provide in bold and prominent type that the discounts are not insurance;
        (2) the discounts are not specifically authorized by
a contract with each health care provider listed in conjunction with the card or other purchasing mechanism or device; or
        (3) the discounts or access to discounts offered or
the range of discounts or access to the range of discounts offered are misleading, deceptive or fraudulent, regardless of the literal wording used.
