Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides a guideline for the repayment of ambulance services for emergency ambulance services, non-emergency ambulance services, mileage, advanced life support services, and specialty care transport services. Provides that the requirement for payment of ground ambulance services by the Illinois Department of Public Aid is met if the services are provided pursuant to a request for evaluation, treatment, and transport for an individual with a condition of such a nature that a prudent layperson would have reasonably expected that a delay in seeking immediate medical attention would have been hazardous to life or health. Requires the Department to annually update the ambulance fee schedule rates on July 1 of each year.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Healthcare & Family Services)
 Rate methodologies do not belong in rule as this restricts the Department's ability to address access issues. FY 08 annual cost is estimated at $36 million.
