Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Public Health Program Beneficiary Employer Disclosure Law; provides that applicants for Medicaid or Children's Health Insurance Program benefits, or persons requesting uncompensated care in a hospital, may identify their employers, and requires the Department of Public Aid or its successor agency, in collaboration with the Department of Human Services and the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, to annually report to the General Assembly the names and addresses and other information with respect to such identified employers that have more than 100 employees and 25 or more public health access program beneficiaries; repeals the Law on January 1, 2009. Creates the Illinois Adverse Health Care Events Reporting Law of 2005. Requires hospitals and ambulatory surgical treatment centers to report to the Department of Public Health the following types of adverse health care events: surgical events; product or device events; patient protection events; care management events; environmental events; and physical security events. Requires facilities to conduct a root cause analysis of adverse health care events and either implement a corrective action plan or report to the Department any reasons for not taking corrective action. Requires the Department to establish an adverse health care event reporting system to facilitate quality improvement in the health care system, to be fully operational by January 1, 2008. Requires the Department to appoint a Health Care Event Reporting Advisory Committee to make recommendations for potential quality improvement practices and modifications to the list of reportable adverse health care events consistent with national standards. Requires the Department to conduct a testing period of at least 6 months to identify problems or deficiencies with the planned reporting process, and requires that the Department complete this and other actions by January 1, 2007. Authorizes the Department to contract with an entity for receiving all adverse health care event reports, root cause analysis findings, and corrective action plans that must be reported to the Department. Amends the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act and the Hospital Licensing Act to require compliance with the Illinois Adverse Health Care Events Reporting Law of 2005. Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code in connection with hospital provider assessments. Adds a definition of "adjusted gross hospital revenue". Provides that for the privilege of engaging in the occupation of hospital provider, an annual assessment is imposed on each hospital provider for State fiscal years 2006, 2007, and 2008, in an amount equal to 2.5835% of the hospital provider's adjusted gross hospital revenue for inpatient services and 2.5835% of the hospital provider's adjusted gross hospital revenue for outpatient services. Makes certain existing exemptions from assessments applicable only to State fiscal years 2004 and 2005. Makes changes concerning the payment of assessments. Provides that in the case of a hospital provider that did not conduct, operate, or maintain a hospital in 2003, the assessment for that State fiscal year shall be computed on the basis of hypothetical adjusted gross hospital revenue for the hospital's first full fiscal year as determined by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. Requires hospital providers to keep certain records. Provides for a clarification or correction of errors in the calculation of an assessment. Authorizes disbursements from the Hospital Provider Fund for State fiscal years 2006, 2007 and 2008 for making transfers to the Health and Human Services Medicaid Trust Fund of up to $130,000,000 per year of the moneys received from hospital providers. Makes changes in the circumstances under which assessments shall not take effect or shall cease to be imposed. Provides for the following hospital access improvement payments for hospital services rendered on or after August 1, 2005: Medicaid eligibility payments; Medicaid high volume adjustments; intensive care adjustments; and other payments. Provides that the provisions imposing assessments are repealed on July 1, 2008 (instead of 2005). Provides that the provisions for hospital access improvement payments for hospital services rendered on or after August 1, 2005 are repealed on July 1, 2008. Makes other changes. Adds a severability provision. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that the report of employer-provided health insurance information to the General Assembly under the Public Health Program Beneficiary Employer Disclosure Law shall include a description of the methodology used in the collection of the data and an analysis regarding the effect of employment and health coverage on the assistance programs provided by the State, as well as specified information concerning employees and employers. For purposes of the Illinois Adverse Health Care Events Reporting Law of 2005, provides that the term "death" means patient death related to an adverse event and not related solely to the natural course of the patient's illness or underlying condition (instead of patient death that would not have occurred but for an event described in a Section of the Law concerning the disclosure requirements of a health care facility). Provides that the term "serious disability" means a physical or mental impairment, including loss of a body part, related to an adverse event and not related solely to the natural course of the patient's illness or underlying condition, that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities (instead of a physical or mental impairment that would not have occurred but for an event described in a Section of the Law concerning the disclosure requirements of a health care facility that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities) of an individual. Provides that the annual report published by the Department shall summarize, in aggregate form, the corrective action plans and findings of root cause analyses submitted by health care facilities (instead of summarize, in aggregate form, the types of corrective action plans implemented by health care facilities collectively). Makes other changes.
