HOME & COMMUNITY BASED SERVICS                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Act on the  Aging,  the  Mental  Health  and       
   Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act, and the Illinois Public      
   Aid  Code.   With  respect  to provisions for home and community-based      
   services as an alternative to institutional care,  provides  that  the      
   eligibility standards for those services must include a provision that      
   if  eligibility  for  a  particular home or community-based service is      
   based on a person's functional  need,  every  person  with  a  similar      
   functional  need  is  eligible  for  that  service,  regardless of the      
   person's age or the nature of the person's disability.   Requires  the      
   Department  on  Aging,  the  Department  of  Human  Services,  and the      
   Department of Public Aid to ensure that persons  who  may  be  or  may      
   become  eligible  for home or community-based services are notified of      
   their right to receive those services;  requires those departments  to      
   take  other  measures.   Requires  the  departments  to  cooperate  in      
   developing transition teams to assist persons in making the transition      
   from institutional care to home or community-based care and to perform      
   other functions.  Effective immediately.
