Synopsis As Introduced Creates the Illinois ElderCare Options Act for the purpose of initiating the first phase of the implementation of the overhaul of the long-term care system as encompassed in the Older Adult Services Act. Provides for use of the term "Illinois ElderCare" in the names of agencies whose ElderCare services or programs are funded in whole or in part with State or federal moneys. Changes the name of the "case coordination units" that contract with the Department on Aging to "Illinois ElderCare Connections agencies", and provides that those agencies shall serve as the single point-of-entry agencies for all ElderCare services. Sets forth standards for Illinois ElderCare Connections agencies, including that such agencies must be based on the principles of client-focused and consumer-directed services and care. Requires that all Illinois ElderCare Connections agencies perform a comprehensive assessment on all older adults who need services. Requires the Department on Aging to develop a common comprehensive assessment tool to be used by the agencies. Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging, the State Finance Act, the Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act, the Hospital Licensing Act, the Respite Program Act, and the Older Adult Services Act to make conforming changes. Effective immediately.
