 1        AN ACT concerning insurance.

 2        Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section 5.  The Illinois Insurance  Code  is  amended  by
 5    changing Section 356h as follows:

 6        (215 ILCS 5/356h) (from Ch. 73, par. 968h)
 7        Sec.  356h.   Adopted  children.  No  individual or group
 8    policy of accident and  health  insurance  which  covers  the
 9    insured's  immediate  family or children, as well as covering
10    the insured, shall exclude a child  from  coverage  or  limit
11    coverage  for  a child solely because the child is an adopted
12    child, or solely because the child does not reside  with  the
13    insured.  For purposes of this Section, a child who is in the
14    custody of the insured, pursuant to an interim court order of
15    adoption or, in the case of  group  insurance,  placement  of
16    adoption,  whichever  comes  first, vesting temporary care of
17    the child in the insured, is an adopted child, regardless  of
18    whether a final order granting adoption is ultimately issued.
