Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
20 ILCS 105/1from Ch. 23, par. 6101


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning the short title.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
20 ILCS 105/1
Adds reference to:
20 ILCS 105/4.02from Ch. 23, par. 6104.02

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging. Requires the Department on Aging to establish and implement a Community Care Program Medicaid Initiative to: provide targeted funding to care coordination units to help seniors complete applications for medical assistance benefits under the State's Medical Assistance program; provide a funding pool to help care coordination units make improvements to the application process; establish requirements for State agencies to make enrollment in the Medical Assistance program easier for seniors; and other matters. Creates the Community Care Program Medicaid Enrollment Oversight Task Force to make recommendations on how best to increase the number of Illinois residents who are enrolled in the Community Care Program and receive services not paid for under the Medical Assistance program although they may be eligible for benefits. Provides for the membership of the Task Force. Requires the Task Force to provide oversight to the Initiative and to meet quarterly to provide the Department with data on the number of persons who receive Community Care Program services and are eligible for medical assistance but are not enrolled in the Medical Assistance program. Requires the Department to publish such data on its website and to collaborate with other agencies to determine how best to achieve the responsibilities of the Initiative. Establishes payment incentives to care coordination units that assist seniors in completing medical assistance applications. Provides that the Initiative shall cease operation 5 years after the effective date of the amendatory Act, after which the Task Force shall dissolve.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Adds reference to:
320 ILCS 42/35

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of Senate Amendment No. 1, but with the following changes: Further amends the Illinois Act on the Aging. Removes references to the creation of the Community Care Program Medicaid Enrollment Oversight Task Force and instead creates that the Community Care Program Medicaid Enrollment Oversight Subcommittee as a subcommittee of the Older Adult Services Advisory Committee to make recommendations on how best to increase the number of medical assistance recipients who are enrolled in the Community Care Program. Provides that the Subcommittee shall consist of certain appointed persons including one individual appointed by a labor organization representing front line employees at the Department of Human Services. Provides that the Subcommittee shall collaborate with the Department of Human Services on the adoption of a uniform application submission process (rather than the Department of Human Services shall adopt a uniform application submission process no later than 60 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act). In a provision authorizing payments to care coordination units for each completed Medicaid application, changes the payment rate to no less than $240 per completed application (rather than no less than $300 per completed application). Amends the Older Adult Services Act. Provides that the Older Adult Services Advisory Committee's Community Care Program Medicaid Enrollment Oversight Subcommittee shall have the membership and powers and duties set forth the Illinois Act on the Aging.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill, but with the following changes: In provisions requiring the Community Care Program Medicaid Initiative to provide targeted funding to care coordination units to help seniors complete their applications for medical assistance, provides that care coordination units shall receive payment for each completed application (rather than care coordination units shall receive payment for each completed application for those months in which the total statewide number of medical assistance applications all care coordination units helped seniors complete is at or above the total statewide number of medical assistance applications completed during the same month during calendar year 2017). Changes the payment rate for each completed application from $240 to $200.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this bill; therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill 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.

 Pension Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This bill will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Judicial Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State of Illinois.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to this bill as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Correctional Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Corrections)
 There is no corrections population impact or fiscal impact to the Department of Corrections.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept on Aging)
 SB 1628 (H-AM 1) could have an estimated fiscal impact of $18.2 million dollars. Currently, Care Coordination Units (CCUs) are reimbursed on a sliding scale depending on the client's needs. The reimbursement rate for an initial assessment for services includes helping seniors complete a medical assistance application, a statutory requirement to receive Community Care Program services. CCUs may also currently bill for assisting clients who are eligible for redetermination of medical assistance benefits. The Department estimates that 60% of clients in the Community Care Program would apply or reapply for medical assistance benefits annually. This includes clients who could be spend down eligible, fully eligible, or not eligible at all. There may be other fiscal impacts resulting from this legislation, as no methodology or study has been completed. Therefore, the full impact on the Department is unknown. Finally, there would be tasks currently conducted by Department staff that would not be able to be completed due to responsibilities required within SB 1628 (H-AM 1).

 Home Rule Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.
