Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. Provides that if the respondent is unable to obtain an examination in an involuntary admission proceeding or in a proceeding seeking the administration of psychotropic medication or electroconvulsive therapy, the respondent may request that the court order an examination to be made by a physician, qualified examiner, clinical psychologist, or other expert (rather than by an impartial medical expert under Supreme Court Rules or by a qualified examiner, clinical psychologist, or other expert). Provides that the court must determine the compensation of the examiner or other expert. Provides that the compensation must be paid by the respondent's county of residence unless the respondent is not a resident of the State, in which case the fee must be paid by the county in which the proceeding is pending. Deletes provision that determination of the compensation of the physician, qualified examiner, clinical psychologist, or other expert and its payment shall be governed by Supreme Court Rule.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill. Provides that the recipient in a discharge proceeding is entitled to secure an independent examination by a physician, qualified examiner, clinical psychologist, or other expert of his or her choice. If the recipient is unable to obtain an examination in a discharge proceeding, the recipient may request that the court order an examination to be made by a physician, qualified examiner, clinical psychologist, or other expert. The physician or other examiner, whether secured by the recipient or appointed by the court, may interview by telephone or in person any witnesses or other persons listed in the petition for discharge. Provides that the physician or other examiner may submit to the court a report in which his or her findings are described in detail. Provides that the court must determine the compensation of the examiner or other expert. The compensation must be paid by the recipient's county of residence unless the recipient is not a resident of this State, in which case the fee must be paid by the county in which the proceeding is pending.
