Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. In provisions concerning ambulance service payments under the Medicaid program, provides that for ambulance services provided to a Medicaid recipient on or after January 1, 2006, the Department of Public Aid shall reimburse providers of medical transportation services provided to a disabled person by means of a medi-car, regardless of whether the person has a physical disability or a mental or cognitive disability. Provides that the Department or its authorized prior approval agent shall determine that a person is disabled and eligible for transportation by means of a medi-car if a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches certifies to the Department in writing that the person has a physical disability or a mental or cognitive disability.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Public Aid)
 Assuming that 3% of the Medicaid population has a qualifying mental or cognitive disability, the fiscal impact of this legislation is approximately $125,000.
