Synopsis As Introduced Creates the MC/DD Act. Provides that long-term care for under age 22 facilities shall be licensed as medically complex for the developmentally disabled facilities under the MC/DD Act instead of the ID/DD Community Care Act. Makes the provisions in the MC/DD Act substantially the same as those in the ID/DD Community Care Act, including provisions for the rights of residents and responsibilities of facilities, licensing, violations and penalties, and transfer or discharge of residents. Amends various Acts to make conforming changes. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Contains a nonacceleration provision. Effective July 1, 2015.
Senate Committee Amendment No. 1 In the MC/DD Act, removes provisions establishing the MC/DD Facility Advisory Board and replaces references to the MC/DD Facility Advisory Board with references to the DD Facility Advisory Board established under the ID/DD Community Care Act. In the Illinois Public Aid Code, incorporates MC/DD facilities into a provision that requires the Department of Healthcare and Family Services to establish procedures, within 365 days after August 15, 2014, to permit ID/DD facilities to submit monthly billing claims for reimbursement purposes and deletes a provision that requires the Department to establish those procedures for MC/DD facilities within 365 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act. In a provision of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act that defines the term "health care facilities", incorporates MC/DD facilities into an existing list item concerning ID/DD facilities (instead of as a standalone list item).
