Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that the Director of Public Health, if a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois, shall establish a standing order complete with the issuance of a prescription for a hormonal contraceptive in accordance with the requirements of the provisions. Provides that if the Director is not a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois, the Medical Director of the Department of Public Health shall establish the standing order. Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Requires a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance or managed care plan to provide coverage for patient care services provided by a pharmacist. Makes conforming changes in the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971, the Counties Code, the Illinois Municipal Code, and the School Code. Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act. Provides that the definition of "practice of pharmacy" includes the dispensing of hormonal contraceptives pursuant to the standing order under provisions of the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Requires the medical assistance program to cover patient care services provided by a pharmacist for hormonal contraceptives assessment and consultation. Effective January 1, 2022.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
20 ILCS 2310/2310-705 new
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 85/43 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Further amends the Pharmacy Practice Act. Sets forth provisions concerning dispensation of hormonal contraceptives. Provides that the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation may adopt rules to implement the provisions. In provisions in the Illinois Public Aid Code concerning coverage for patient care services for hormonal contraceptives provided by a pharmacist, provides that the Department of Public Health (rather than the Director of Public Health) shall apply for any necessary federal waivers or approvals to implement the provisions by January 1, 2022. Provides that the Department shall submit to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules administrative rules (rather than adopt administrative rules) as soon as practicable but no later than 6 months after federal approval is received (rather than no later than May 1, 2022). Removes changes to the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Removes language that provides that the provisions shall not be implemented until the receipt of all necessary federal waivers or approvals or until January 1, 2024, whichever comes first, and if federal approval is not obtained by January 1, 2024, the provisions shall be implemented using State funds.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance or a managed care plan that is amended, delivered, issued, or renewed on or after January 1, 2023 (rather than the effective date of the amendatory Act) shall provide coverage for health care or patient care services provided by a pharmacist if specified conditions are met (instead of coverage for patient care services provided by a pharmacist for hormonal contraceptives assessment and consultation). Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act to provide that nothing in the provisions concerning dispensation of hormonal contraceptives shall be interpreted to require a pharmacist to dispense hormonal contraception under a standing order issued by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches or the medical director of a local health department (rather than also under a standing order issued by the Medical Director of the Department of Public Health). Changes the definition of "practice of pharmacy". Effective January 1, 2023 (rather than January 1, 2022).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that the bill takes effect on January 1, 2022, except that provisions amending the Illinois Insurance Code take effect on January 1, 2023 (rather than all provisions taking effect on January 1, 2023).
