Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that not later than one year after the effective date of this amendatory Act, the Director of the Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall implement an internet-based transparency program under which the Director shall make available through the Department's Internet website non-aggregated information on individuals collected under the State's Medicaid program insofar as such information has been de-identified in accordance with regulations promulgated pursuant to the Illinois Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Imposes certain standards on the presentation of such information. Contains provisions concerning reporting requirements.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts similar provisions, but with the following changes: Provides that the Director of the Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall be authorized to implement an internet-based transparency program under which the Director shall make available through the Department's Internet website information on medical claims reimbursed under the State's medical assistance program (rather than non-aggregated information on individuals collected under the State's Medicaid program). Provides that the information made so available shall be aggregated to a level to ensure patient confidentiality, but shall, to the extent feasible, allow for posting of information by provider or vendor name and county, number of individuals served, total patient visits, payment for bills submitted, average cost for bills submitted, adjustments to payments, and total amounts paid. Eliminates language providing that to the extent feasible, all hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and large physician practices made public under the program are identifiable by name, and that all individual health care providers, including physicians and dentists, are identifiable by unique identifier numbers that are disclosed only to appropriate officials within the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. Requires the Director to submit to the General Assembly a report on the status of the program not later than 12 months after the effective date of this amendatory Act (rather than not later than 2 years after the effective date of this amendatory Act). Changes the effective date to immediate. Effective immediately.
