Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Act  on  the  Aging.   In  provisions  for  a      
   community care program (CCP) of services to prevent unnecessary             
   institutionalization of persons age 60 and older,  provides  that  the      
   Department  on  Aging's  eligibility  standards  for the services must      
   include a provision that, to be eligible for services,  a  person  may      
   not  have  assets  totaling  more  than  $20,000  if (i) the person is      
   unmarried or (ii) the person is married and the person or the person's      
   spouse meets certain criteria.  Provides that if the person is married      
   and the person's spouse does not receive community care services,  the      
   person  may  not  have  assets  totaling more than the asset disregard      
   amount used by the Department of Public Aid in determining eligibility      
   for medical assistance under the Illinois Public Aid Code.   Effective      
   January 1, 2003.                                                            
          FISCAL NOTE (Department on Aging)                                    
          There may be 7,203 additional individuals, at a cost of $5,568       
          for one year each, who may require the CCP for an estimated          
          initial cost of $40,106,304.
