Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance must provide coverage for medically necessary preventative physical therapy for insureds diagnosed with multiple sclerosis without any treatment limitation or calendar year maximum. Removes requirements that coverage under this provision be subject to the same waiting period, cost sharing limitation, treatment limitation, calendar year maximum, or other limitation as provided for other physical or rehabilitative therapy benefits.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes language in the introduced bill that provides that a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance must provide coverage for medically necessary preventative physical therapy for insureds diagnosed with multiple sclerosis without any treatment limitation or calendar year maximum. Provides that coverage concerning multiple sclerosis preventative physical therapy shall be subject to the same deductible and coinsurance requirements or other limitations as provided for other physical or rehabilitative therapy benefits covered by the policy. Provides that a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance shall offer an exception process from treatment limitations for individuals diagnosed with primary or secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Provides requirements for the exception process and that a health insurer shall, within 72 hours after receiving an exception request, either approve or deny the request. Provides that coverage required by the provisions shall be subject to certain other general exclusions and limitations of the policy.

 Judicial Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of the Attorney General)
