Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
305 ILCS 5/5A-4
(305 ILCS 5/5A-4)
(from Ch. 23, par. 5A-4)
Payment of assessment; penalty.
(a) The assessment imposed by Section 5A-2 for State fiscal year 2009 and each subsequent State fiscal year shall be due and payable in monthly installments, each equaling one-twelfth of the assessment for the year, on the fourteenth State business day of each month.
No installment payment of an assessment imposed by Section 5A-2 shall be due
payable, however, until after the Comptroller has issued the payments required under this Article.
Except as provided in subsection (a-5) of this Section, the assessment imposed by subsection (b-5) of Section 5A-2 for the portion of State fiscal year 2012 beginning June 10, 2012 through June 30, 2012, and for State fiscal year 2013 and each subsequent State fiscal year shall be due and payable in monthly installments, each equaling one-twelfth of the assessment for the year, on the 14th State business day of each month. No installment payment of an assessment imposed by subsection (b-5) of Section 5A-2 shall be due and payable, however, until after: (i) the Department notifies the hospital provider, in writing, that the payment methodologies to hospitals required under Section 5A-12.4, have been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the waiver under 42 CFR 433.68 for the assessment imposed by subsection (b-5) of Section 5A-2, if necessary, has been granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and (ii) the Comptroller has issued the payments required under Section 5A-12.4. Upon notification to the Department of approval of the payment methodologies required under Section 5A-12.4 and the waiver granted under 42 CFR 433.68, if necessary, all installments otherwise due under subsection (b-5) of Section 5A-2 prior to the date of notification shall be due and payable to the Department upon written direction from the Department and issuance by the Comptroller of the payments required under Section 5A-12.4.
(a-5) The Illinois Department may accelerate the schedule upon which assessment installments are due and payable by hospitals with a payment ratio greater than or equal to one. Such acceleration of due dates for payment of the assessment may be made only in conjunction with a corresponding acceleration in access payments identified in Section 5A-12.2 or Section 5A-12.4 to the same hospitals. For the purposes of this subsection (a-5), a hospital's payment ratio is defined as the quotient obtained by dividing the total payments for the State fiscal year, as authorized under Section 5A-12.2 or Section 5A-12.4, by the total assessment for the State fiscal year imposed under Section 5A-2 or subsection (b-5) of Section 5A-2.
(b) The Illinois Department is authorized to establish
delayed payment schedules for hospital providers that are unable
to make installment payments when due under this Section due to
financial difficulties, as determined by the Illinois Department.
(c) If a hospital provider fails to pay the full amount of
an installment when due (including any extensions granted under
subsection (b)), there shall, unless waived by the Illinois
Department for reasonable cause, be added to the assessment
imposed by Section 5A-2 a penalty
assessment equal to the lesser of (i) 5% of the amount of the
installment not paid on or before the due date plus 5% of the
portion thereof remaining unpaid on the last day of each 30-day period
thereafter or (ii) 100% of the installment amount not paid on or
before the due date. For purposes of this subsection, payments
will be credited first to unpaid installment amounts (rather than
to penalty or interest), beginning with the most delinquent
(d) Any assessment amount that is due and payable to the Illinois Department more frequently than once per calendar quarter shall be remitted to the Illinois Department by the hospital provider by means of electronic funds transfer. The Illinois Department may provide for remittance by other means if (i) the amount due is less than $10,000 or (ii) electronic funds transfer is unavailable for this purpose.
