Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Human Services Act and the Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that, for purposes of the Department of Human Services' disability database, "developmental disabilities" include autism spectrum disorders. In connection with Medicaid, provides that a person diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder shall be considered a person with a "developmental disability" or a "person with a related condition" for purposes of determining eligibility for services under Home and Community-Based Services Waivers for persons with developmental disabilities, without regard to whether that person is also diagnosed with mental retardation and without regard to that person's IQ level, so long as the person otherwise meets applicable level-of-care criteria under those waivers. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
305 ILCS 5/5-5e new
Adds reference to:
405 ILCS 80/5-4 new

Makes "autism spectrum disorders" a separate category of conditions to be included in the Department of Human Services' disability database, instead of being included with developmental disabilities. Replaces provisions amending the Illinois Public Aid Code with substantially similar provisions amending the Developmental Disability and Mental Disability Services Act, except provides that a person diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder may be assessed for eligibility for services under Home and Community-Based Services Waivers for persons with developmental disabilities (instead of shall be considered a person with a "developmental disability" or a "person with a related condition" for purposes of determining such eligibility), without regard to whether that person is also diagnosed with mental retardation (eliminates a reference to the person's IQ level), so long as the person otherwise meets applicable level-of-care criteria under those waivers.
