Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Requires the Department of Children and Family Services to increase reimbursement rates, for State Fiscal Year 2019, to each foster parent and to each private agency with a purchase of service contract or grant from the Department to an amount that equals the sum of all increases in general inflation during State Fiscal Years 2009 through 2018 as determined by the Consumer Price Index as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor, less any rate increases provided by the Department. Sets forth the types of services eligible for the increased reimbursement rate, including, intact family services and traditional or Home-of-Relative foster care services. Provides that beginning in State Fiscal Year 2020, and for every State Fiscal Year thereafter, the Department shall implement the rate reimbursement methodology outlined in a specified provision of the Illinois Administrative Code when calculating and determining the payment rates for private agencies that contract with the Department to provide residential services, including child care institution, group home care, independent living services, or transitional living services. Provides that foster parent rates and payment rates for other specified services shall be adjusted each year to an amount that equals any increase in general inflation as determined by the Consumer Price index. Effective immediately.
