Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Insurance Code, the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971, the Counties Code, the Illinois Municipal Code, the School Code, the Health Maintenance Organization Act, the Limited Health Service Organization Act, and the Voluntary Health Services Plans Act to provide that a company that issues, delivers, amends, or renews a policy of accident and health insurance shall accommodate a reasonable request by a person covered by a policy issued by the company to receive communications of claim-related information from the company by alternative means or at alternative locations if the person clearly states that disclosure of all or part of the information could endanger the person. Provides that if a child is covered by a policy issued by a company, then the child's parent or guardian may make a request to the company pursuant to the provision concerning alternative means of communication. Provides that a company may require (1) a person making a request pursuant to the provision concerning alternative means of communication to do so in writing, (2) the request to contain a statement that disclosure of all or part of the claim-related information to which the request pertains could endanger the person or child, and (3) the specification of an alternative address, telephone number, or other method of contact. Sets forth provisions concerning liability, the disclosure of protected information, and court orders.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This legislation would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Insurance)
 HB 3300 has no projected fiscal impact to the Illinois Department of Insurance.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
215 ILCS 5/356z.16

Further amends the Illinois Insurance Code to provide that the Section of the Code concerning claim-related information and alternative means of communication does not apply to short-term travel, disability income, long-term care, accident only, or limited or specified disease policies.
