Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971, the Illinois Insurance Code, and the Health Maintenance Organization Act. Provides that a policy or plan that provides coverage for hospital or medical treatment on an expense incurred basis, may offer a reasonably designed program for wellness coverage that allows for certain incentives for participation in health behavior wellness programs that are approved or offered by the insurer or plan. Provides that wellness coverage, as defined in the Act, shall satisfy the requirements for an exception from the general prohibition against discrimination based on a health factor under the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Contains a nonacceleration clause. Makes other changes. Effective January 1, 2010.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the bill as introduced with the following changes. Sets forth requirements concerning (1) opportunities for participants to qualify for incentives, (2) alternatives for participants to satisfy applicable wellness program standards where it is unreasonably difficult due to the participant's medical condition, and (3) the ratio of the total incentive monetary amount to the cost of employee-only coverage. Imposes conditions on any rulemaking authority. Makes other changes. Effective January 1, 2010.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that individuals who are unable to participate in incentives due to an adverse health factor shall not be penalized based upon an adverse health status. Sets forth a definition of "reasonably designed program". Deletes a provision concerning rulemaking authority.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes references to health spending accounts. Deletes language that provides that the insured or enrollee may be required to provide evidence of demonstrative compliance with treatment recommendations as determined by the health insurer or managed care plan.
